THE TEMPLES IN 24 PARGANAS

Baruipur has a famous gajan utsab, which starts with the exposition of a lock of hair of one Bhriguram. The story of Bhriguram is interesting. It is said that there was once a severely contested lathi fight between the lathials of the Sabarna Choudhurys of Barisa and the Roy Choudhurys of Baruipur over the boundary dispute of their respective Zamindars.The Sardar of the lathials of the Sabarna Choudhurys was Bhriguram.

The lathials of Baruipur managed to cut off the head of Bhriguram with a sword and won the fight. But Bhriguram was so much respected in the area that a lock of his hair was preserved. Bhriguram is still publicly honoured by the exposition of lock on the
gajan mela at Baruipur.

The village of Majilpur in the district of 24 Parganas is associated with the ancient Jainagar village. The erosion of some of the Gangetic islands laid a new colony known as Majilpur.
