Jakpur is a small station located along the Howrah-Kharagpur train route and located just before KGP station if you travel from Howrah. If you like to enjoy village walk and local folklore, then this is an ideal location for nature lovers.
Maa Manasa Temple, Jakpur
Maa Manasa Temple, Jakpur
I have heard a lot about this temple. This temple is popular for jagrata devi Maa Manasa (Maa is actively present here to fulfill wishes for followers). Local people says if you wish with your heart, Maa will fulfill your dream.
According to local people, the temple of a temporary goddess was small at this place 10 years ago. The new temple was built just four years ago. In fact, this area was covered with dense forest and agricultural land of farmers. The herd of zamindar cattle came here to graze. One day, Jaiminder's mink man noticed that cows were not giving milk when they came from the forest area. Ordered Jaminder to check. Cowman later found that every day cows enter nearby bush and forest areas and give milk to someone inside the forest. According to Hindu mythology, snakes sucked the milk of cows. Later Ma Mansa appeared in the dream of a zamindar and ordered him to build a temple in the forest area. Construction of MakeShift Platform for Mansa Pooja for the first time. Many devotees from far away villages started visiting this place and fulfilled their wishes.
One day a realtor on the way to business trip crossed this location while in train and his wished some thing sitting on train. His wishes  also got fulfilled. He then donated money to build this modern temple what you see today.
Even today, people come from far and wide to get a glimpse of Maa Manasha Devi and worship them, you will not find heavy sculpture or eye catching arrangements here, but the local atmosphere and simplicity of the local people will definitely give you fresh and mental Will satisfy
