Hanseswari and Vasudeb Temple is located in Bansberia, an hour from Kolkata/Calcutta and is a classic example of a Hindu tantric temple design.

Hanseswari Devi, whose temple is adjacent to Vasudeva temple, is a Tantrik goddess.

This temple is a 'charchla' temple, with a hexagonal spire and is devoted to 'Vaishnava' faith. The panels on this temple depict life of Krsna ( Krsna Leela ) and stories from Hindu mythology.
