THE TEMPLES IN 24 PARGANAS

According to legend Murshid Kuli Khan had imprisoned Madan Mohan Roy Choudhury, the Zamindar of Baruipur because of arrears of revenue. Gazi Saheb, a Pir held in great esteem by Murshid Kuli Khan is supposed to have given an order to Murshid Kuli Khan in a dream that not only Madan Mohan should be released but also he should be presented with a new Zamindari. Murshid Kuli khan released Madan Mohan and gave him this village along with other villages.

The legend shows a high incidence of communal unity and this unity is still preserved. Both Hindus and Muslims hold Pirs in great esteem at this and a number of other villages in this area. When Gazi Saheb a pir passed away the Roy Choudhury Zamindars constructed a dargah at Ghutiarisharif village in honor of Gazi Saheb. At the time of ambubachi a largely attended mela is held at Ghutiarisharif.
