THE TEMPLES IN 24 PARGANAS

Introduction

The district of 24 Parganas adjoins Calcutta and covers an ancient area. Large number of very old bricks and pieces of pottery, rectangular copper coins and terra cotta have been found which definitely suggest the possibility of more early antiquities if excavations are done. The area was under the reputed Maharaja Pratapaditya of Jessore. There are a number of villages now in decadence but which obviously had once seen prosperous days.  A rapid view of some of these villages will be some interest.
