People of different traditions live in our country. These traditions can be very strange to some people. Today we are going to tell you about one such tradition. This tradition is associated with men wearing sarees. Men also worship God by wearing saris. Actually, this tradition is being followed for centuries in Chandan Nagar of Hooghly district of West Bengal.

According to tradition, not women but men worship the goddess by wearing saris. This tradition is being performed here not for two years but for the last 229 years at this place. Maa Jagadhatri is worshiped by men in Chandan Nagar, West Bengal. During this, not the women of the house but the men worship the mother wearing a sari. This view is very different.

During this, men worship Mother Jagadhatri by wearing a sari and putting a pallu on their heads. Not only this. During this, hundreds of devotees also gather inside and outside the pavilion complex.


This tradition of West Bengal dates back to the time of British rule. When the British ruled 229 years ago, women did not leave the house after dusk for fear of the British. Then the men of the house wore saris and worshiped Mother Jagadhatri. After this, it became a tradition which is continuing till date.
