Jagadhatri Puja, also known as Dhatri Puja and Jagadamba Puja, is an important Hindu festival that traces it roots to the Chandannagar in West Bengal. Jagdhatri Puja is observed on the ninth day (navami) during waxing phase of moon in the Bengali Kartik month. Jagadhatri Puja is essentially the worship of Shakti. Goddess Jagadhatri is believed to be a form of Durga.
The ancient history of Jagadhatri Puja in Chandannagar is unknown even today. It is heard that
Indranarayan Chowdhury introduced the Jagadhatri Puja in Chandannagar in the manner of King
Krishnachandra of Krishnanagore. The time of beginning of Jagadhatri Puja in Krishnanagore was 1762.
Indranarayan Choudhury died in 1756. So Indranarayan Choudhury by no means introduce the Jagadhatri
puja in Chandannagar. The beginning of Jagadhatri puja in Chandannagar probably dates back earlier than
1750. Indranarayan Choudhury performed the Jagadhatri puja at his own house in Chandannagar, at the
time Krishna Chandra used to come to borrow money from Indranarayan Choudhury. Perhaps
Krishnachandra was attracted to greatness of Jagadhatri at this time.
The number of community pujas in Chandannagar, Bhadreswar and Champdany Municipal areas
crosses 190 mark. Of these, 142 Puja committees in different localities in Chandannagar and Bhadreswar
are affiliated to the Chandannagar Central Jagadhatri Puja Committee. Juba sampradaya Puja Committee
Boro champatala is one of the best of them. Juba Sampradaya Puja Committee has completed a long path
of 50 years in the year 2012.
