On Dhaka-Betka (Sirajdikhan) highway after passing Sirajdikhan and crossing the river Isamoti, a Hindu Moth is seen on the left side. This moth is called the Fegnasar Moth which is actually a Shiva Temple.
It is 150 feet in height, making it visible from the highway. There is a Shiva Linga inside the moth. Devotees pray here almost regularly. Like other Hindu Moths it has magnificent wall structure. The total place and surrounding is decorated with flower garden specially Joba(Chinese Rose). According to ritual, tulsi plant and jasmine tree is also cultivated.
Specialty of this place is, the Moth was established about 200 years ago. Obviously at that time the road structure was not likewise today. The moth is situated inside a large crop field. It is actually like an island surrounded by rice field. So that if you want to come here, you have to walf from the highway through an off-road trail inside the crop field. In rainy season, the way becomes very muddy and slippery. But you will still enjoy a lot!
Please do not refer this place to people as "Fegnasar Shiva Mandir" because there is another Shiva temple in this locality in this name. Just ask for the "Moth".

The temple was constructed in 1820 by Rani Bimola Devi (রানী বিমলা দেবী), the mother of Maharaja Shashikantha Acharya Choudhary (শশীকান্ত আচার্য চৌধুরী), the Zamindar of Muktagacha.
The twin temples consist of the Shree Shree Anandamoyi ( শ্রী শ্রী আনন্দময়ী) Shiva and Kali Mata Mandir (কালী মাতা মন্দির).

The temple is in dilapidated condition due to lack of repairs.
