We present multiwavelength observations by Chandrayaan-2/Solar X-ray Monitor, Solar Dynamics Observatory/Atmospheric Imaging Assembly, and Hinode/X-Ray Telescope (XRT) of a B-class flare observed on 2021 February 25, originating from an active region (AR 12804) near the northwest limb. The microflare lasts for ∼30 minutes and is composed of hot loops reaching temperatures of 10 MK. We report excellent agreement (within 20%) for the average effective temperatures obtained at the flare peak from all the three instruments, which have different temperature sensitivities. The XRT filter combination of Be-thin and Be-med provides an excellent opportunity to measure the high temperatures in such microflare events. The elemental abundances during the evolution of the microflare are also studied and observed to drop toward photospheric values at the flare peak time, compared to coronal values during the rise and decay phase. This is consistent with previous XSM studies.
