Sri Sri Jay kali Mata Temple is one of the mythological temples located in Natore, Bangladesh. It was first built in the 18th century by the Diwan of Bahani’s queen at Natore and Datram Roy, the founder of the Dighapatia Rajshahi family. The temple of Lord Shiva is also established in the premises of this temple. Apart from this, Durga and Kali Puja is celebrated with great enthusiasm every year in this temple.
