Chachra Shib Temple(চাঁচড়া শিব মন্দির) is a 17th century built temple that is located at the Chachra(চাঁচড়া) of Jessore(যশোর) district. It is located exactly beside the Jessore-Benapol(যশোর-বেনাপোল) highway. This is a two stored Shiva temple that is having a single Rotno(রত্ন)[basically the second store] at the top.


Chachra Shib Temple(চাঁচড়া শিব মন্দির) is having stylish outer wall at the three sides out of four. Most of those are old fashioned but simple terracotta. It was left carelessly for many years. But recently the department of Bangladesh Archaeology renovated the temple and declared this as an archaeological asset of Bangladesh. From the inscription of the temple, its found that the Temple was build by someone named Monohor Ray(মনোহর রায়) during 1696.





How to Go:

Chachra Shib Temple(চাচড়া শিব মন্দির) is located at Chachra(চাচড়া) which is very near from the main town of Jessore(যশোর). The temple is exactly beside the Jessore-Benapol(যশোর-বেনাপোল) Highway. Our bus from Dhaka dropped us at the Monihar(মনিহার) Cinema Hall at Jessore(যশোর) town. From there it was a 20 taka Rickshaw fare. It took around 10-15 minutes to reach near the Chachra Shib Temple(চাচড়া শিব মন্দির).
