Bewitching Bishnupur
05 Jan 2015
Bishnupur is a place of my school days. We played around those famous temples and they are stored in my memory. Presently I am in Delhi but paid a visit to Bishnupur with my family recently. It was so delighting to refresh my old memories once again. We stayed at the Bishnupur Tourist Lodge run by the west bengal Tourism Dept. People interested in temples and related history must visit this place at least once in a life time.

Probably the only place in Bankura district of West Bengal, where you will find lots and lots of temples made with terracotta. The terracotta art that is diminishing day by day, is well maintained and preserved in temples of Bishnupur by Archaeological Survey of India. It is a must see place for those who love art especially of Medieval Ages.

Bishnupur was the capital city of "Malla Kingdom". So it was historically very important place. The whole town boasts with lots of temple made by "Malla" kings. But due to governmental ignorance and poor maintenance, the temples became debris. Bishnupur is very close to Bankura and Silk of Bishnupur is very famous.
