Type: Temple
Contributed By: Nayeem


Lalmai Chandi Temple, also called Chandimata Mandir is an ancient Hindu temple located on the summit of the Lalmai hill in Barura Upazila of Comilla District, Bangladesh. The temple is dedicated to the Goddess Kali. There is a temple dedicated to the God Shiva nearby.

Most of the tourist spots are somewhere around the other side of Shalbon Bihar of Comilla but this small temple is quite separate from those places. This is at the southern end of the Lalmai Hill. That’s why mostly the devoted people go here & very few tourists visit it. This temple is located at the top of a hillock and you have to climb there by stairs. The stairs are covered with evergreen trees so at be careful when you are climbing up and down.

At any stage, you can have a break by SUPPORTING your body on the railing of the stairs. You can see a long distance from there as you have already climbed a few. The temple premise mainly has two temples. Each of those is having two small compartments which are joined together (considered as single one). Left side temple is the Shiv Mandir and the right side temple is Chondi Mandir.
