TEMPLES IN 24 PARGANAS

At Khardaha there are  twenty-six Siva temples built by different members of the Biswas family of the village. Prankrishna Biswas a member of this family  had collected eighty thousand sacredShalgram Shilas and twenty thousand Bana-lingas-- a remarkable example of deep religious sentiment. He had also collected a number of images including a small Jaina image. His great collections are now still in the village but one does not know if some of them have not been spirited away.

Bhatpara, Kumarhatta and Halisahar are three other villages of this district which have not gone into decadence and still continue to be centers of great Hindu culture, tradition and institutions. Bhatpara has been traditionally one of the biggest centers of Sanskrit savants. These villages have a number of Siva temples besides a number of temples of Jai Chandi. The temples are usually Bengali Charchala, Pancharatna, and Navaratna types.
