  • Dinajpur district of Bangladesh. It is 12 miles north of Dinajpur town. The Mandir was built by "Maharaja Pran Nath", its construction started in 1704 C.E. and ended in 1752 C.E. This is the finest example of the terracotta from the country Bangladesh. History: This late medieval Navaratna Krishna Temple, had been constructed by Maharaja Prannath of Dinajpur. Historical records it took almost 30 years to be completed under the rule of Maharaja Ramnath, the adopted son of the late Maharaja.This Navaratna(although its nine spires were grounded atop its corners during the mighty 1897 earthquake) Krishna temple is prominent for displaying its thousands of beautifully decorated terracotta, a masterpiece of medieval architecture of Bengal. Its thousands of beautifully decorated terracotta, color of the clay, long courtyard and more over the greenery of its peaceful surrounding, will make you calm for a bit like the location itself. How to go: The temple is about a 1 mile west of Dinajpur-Thakurgaon Highway across the Dhepa River. Various types commuters like Bus, Motor byke and Rickshaw Van can get you there within hours from the Town. You have to get off the bus at the Place called 'Kantanagar', if you choose to walk and enjoy the country atmosphere. -Dr. Mansur Golap Biswash
