Mata Ratneswari Asthan located in Ratanpur is famous as a Vaishnavi Durga Peeth in Mitlanchal. The mother here is Lakshmi Swarupa Durga. Only Tatchan, the mother of the devotees who worship her with true spirit, fulfills their wishes. This is the reason that every day devotees from every corner of Mithlanchal and Nepal are worshiped here. Here Mata is worshiped in Vaishnavi system in both Shardiya and Annual Navratri. The idol of Mother Durga is not made here. Worship is offered to the Pindi (Statue) of the Asthit Mata in the temple. Mata Ratneswari Asthan also has an ancient history.

There was the Sen Raj dynasty in Bengal from 1234 to 1293. After the rise of the Deva dynasty, the heirs of the Sen dynasty started migrating from there to other places. Ratnasen, the great-grandson of the heir of the Sab Sen dynasty of the last ruler, fled from Bengal and reached Mithalanchal. He was the ultimate worshiper of Mother Durga. He built his own fort near the then Durga place of Ratanpur. The township was named Ratanpur after the name of Raja Ratnasen. Now it is famous as Ratanpur. Animal sacrifice is not given here. .
