If you’re looking for a truly breathtaking sight, look no further than the Brishnu Mandir in Kanchan Nagar.
This intricately detailed sculpture of Goddess Kali is a true masterpiece, made from precious stones and black rocks. And the attention to detail is truly awe-inspiring – even the veins in her hands look real!
But that’s not all – this stunning structure is also believed to symbolize the continuity of life, thanks to the stones used to create it. They were all found on the Damoder riverbed after the devastating floods of 1923. So not only is this sculpture a work of art, it’s also a symbol of resilience and hope.
And if you’re in the mood for more temple adventures, be sure to check out the temple of Devi Kankaleshwari in Burdwan town. This Navaratna temple was originally dedicated to Radhakrishna, but it’s now home to the idol of Kankaleshwari. And the story of how it got there is pretty funny – it was actually discovered by an official of the King of Barddhaman, who found it being used by local washmen to wash clothes!
But that’s not all – the temple also has a fascinating history involving a saint named Kamalananda Paribrajak, who settled nearby and made the temple the site of his sadhana. And the temple itself is a work of art, with Rekha ridge turrets and multi-cusped entrances. So if you’re looking for a unique and interesting travel experience, be sure to add these temples to your itinerary!
