  • Excellent example of typical Bengal architecture. Made from terracotta which is locally available laterite stones. There are many such temples nearby. You can visit all temples in a day with local or private transportation along with family.
  • Initially a small region under the Gupta Empire, the town of Bishnupur flourished during the reign of the Malla Kings in the 18th century. The most famous example of their patronage is the several terracotta temples that are located here. The temples were built by the Malla kings who employed various local artisans and craftsmen to build a series of temples dedicated to the various Hindu deities.

  • Jor Bangla Temple is located at Bishnupur, WB. It is also known as Kesta Rai temple. It was erected by Malla king Raghunath Singha in AD 1655. The temple facing south is raised on a square platform in the form of a pair of hut shaped structure with sloping roofs joined together & surmounted by charchala sikhara on the top. Both the exterior & interior walls & ceiling of the temple depict exquisite & elaborate Terracotta ornamentation. These Terracotta panels narrate scenes from the epic, Krishnalila, hunting scenes, various other depictions of contemporary social life etc. The excellent quality of art on this temple endows it as one of the finest among the Terracotta temples of West Bengal.
