Ajamtala Temple is a place in West Bengal Barrackpore where Devi Chandi and Pir Baba are worshiped together by both Hindu and Muslim communities.
Inside the temple, there is a Peepal tree where Devi Chandi and Pir Baba both are worshiped. A Shiv Linga is also placed inside the temple.

History of the place:-

From the local people, we heard the story that around 60 to 70 years before a person came from Bangladesh. In his dream, Devi Chandi ordered to worship her in the place (under the peepal tree) where Pir was buried. Those days Azan sounds were Heard from that place even there was nobody. Since then the place is a holy place for both Hindu and Muslim.
