Jagadhatri Puja was started by Sarada Devi (wife of Ramakrishna). She was believed to be the reincarnation of Goddess Durga and is still worshiped in Ramakrishna Mission all over the world. Jagadhatri Puja is celebrated with great vigour and joy.
The idol of Jagadhatri is too similar to Ma Durga idol but there is no Mahisusara, the evil. She holds a conch and a bow in her two left hands and a chakra and a five-headed arrow in her two right hands and her mount (Vahan) is a tiger. So, basically Jagadhatri is a peaceful form of Devi.
