Comilla Jagannath Temple, also known as "Saptaratna Mandir", is a temple dedicated to the Hindu God Jagannath in Comilla, Bangladesh. It dates back to the 16th century, and was built by Sree Sreejoktou Moharaja Rada Kishor Manikuo Bahadur, who was the king of Tripura. The deities of Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra were originally installed in a temple in Tripura from where they were subsequently shifted to this temple. The terracotta brick work of the temple is in the typical Bengal style of temple architecture.
