THE TEMPLES IN 24 PARGANAS

There is a hood of a snake on his head. The right hand has the pose of abhaya- mudra. On the ears are dhatura flowers associated with Lord Siva. The body is of the hue of deep blue. The right foot is folded on the left foot. In comparison to the room the figure is so large and imposing that one is bound to be awe- struck. This curious image has a special worship on the Baisakhi Buddha Purnima (full moon day) * where a big mela is also held. Dharmaraj or Dharma Thakur is also worshipped and the washermen of the village are the pujaris of Dharmaraj.

About two miles from Baharu village is the small village of Maida, which has a Kali temple, which is crumbling away. At one time Maida village was the scene great maritime activities.TheSabarnaChoudhurys of Barisa referred to elsewhere have much to do with the erstwhile prosperity of this village. The Sabarna Choudhurys of Barisa built the Kali temple. The Gramya devatas of Maida includes Sitala,Mansa andBibima. Bibima commands a great respect from both the Muslims and Hindus.

Baruipur on Adi-Ganga river now a decadent village was once the center of great riverine trade and commerce.  Baruipur comprises Atisara village where Sri Chaitanya Dev stopped for a night on his way to Jagannath (Puri). A ghat at Baruipur is known as kakipukur as from this ghat Sri Chaitanya Dev started in a boat for Cuttack. Another ghat is known as Kirtankhola Ghat as it is said that Sri Chaitanya Dev held a nightlong Kirtan (devotional songs) when he stopped at the village.
