The Sri Sri Jagannatha Temple, also known as the Sateraratna Mandir or Temple of Seventeen Jewels, is located in Comilla, Bangladesh. This temple is dedicated to Lord Jagannatha. It dates from the 16th century, and was built by Sri Maharaja Radha-kisore Manikya Vahadura, who was the then king of Tripura.
