Ma Pagli Durga Temple - Mandai, Rajmahal

उस समय इस गांव की आबादी काफी घनी थी । यह मंडी के नाम से जाना जाता था। एक बार ऐसा हुआ कि गांव में लोग अचानक घातक बीमारी की चपेट में आने लगे । एक के बाद एक कई लोगों की मौत होने लगी। लोग गांव छोड़ने का मन बना चुके थे। हालांकि अचानक रात में गांव के ही एक व्यक्ति को मां ने सपने में कहा कि उक्त स्थान पर मेरी पूजा के लिए बेदी बनाओ और हमारी पूजा धूमधाम से करो । तभी तुम लोगों की बीमारी दूर होगी। दूसरे दिन उस व्यक्ति ने गांव के लोगों को इस संबंध में बताया । ग्रामीणों ने मिलकर मां की बेदी बनाकर पूजा अर्चना शुरू की । इससे बीमारी से ग्रामीणों को छुटकारा मिलने लगा। तब से अब तक मां की अनावृत पूजा की जाती है।
