It is the front view Puja Mandap (place of worship). However unlike a Mandir (temple) religious activities do not occur here round the year, rather it takes place on special days (During days of Durga Puja and Kali Puja in this case). So, even though it is considered a holy place, it is not a temple. As a matter of fact you won’t find any idols here if you visit any day of the year except those mentioned earlier. These idols are temporary idols and are immersed in water after the days of worship are over.
