Dhaka: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today offered prayers at the famous 12th century Dhakeshwari national temple, the most revered place for Hindu community in Bangladesh. The Prime Minister spent around 15 minutes at the temple, which is considered an essential part of Dhaka’s cultural heritage and one of the major ‘Shaktipeeths’ of the region.
Modi was felicitated by the priests and authorities of the temple. He was given a replica of Goddess Dhakeshwari and a shawl besides other memorabilia. A number of people here said Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina visits the temple once every year.
