Huge Pandals and beautiful statue of Jagadhatri are decorated with flowers and lights. Jagaddhatri idols are decked up with gold ornaments and red saree. If you see the statue of Jagadhatri, you will not find Mahisasura. So, basically Jagadhatri is a calm form of Maa Durga.  

Like most of other Hindu deities, Mata Jagaddhatri is also famous with other names like Maheswari (the Great Goddess), Adharabhuta (the Bearer of the World), Karindrasuranisudini (Slayer of the Elephant Demon), Shaktacharpriya (the Goddess worshipped in accordance with the practices of the Sakta sect of Shaktism or Hinduism), etc. 

In Sanskrit, Assamse and Bengali the word 'Jagaddhatri' factually means 'Holder (Dhatri) of the World (Jagat)'. Sri Ramakrishna and his consort Sarada Devi described, “Jagaddhatri” as the Goddess who holds and protects our World. This description can be applied for both Goddess Durga and Jagaddhatri. That is why in the hymns, the Goddess Durga is always referred to as ‘Jagaddhatri Durga. Anybody who worships Maa Jagaddhatri becomes totally egoless and a faithful person which is a manifestation of the Brahman.
