BHATTAMATI TEMPLE

Previous to the middle of the nineteenth century the style is conventional and more typical of the religious thought and cultural trends of the then Bengal. The patrons of such artistic temples were the Samantas or the small chiefs.  Later they became somewhat tossed between the emotions of conservatism and the changes at the
end of an era.  They mostly became the satellites of the officers of the Company Bahadur. 

The chivalrous Samantas changed.  In between luxuries, vices, gurus and political troubles they still used to engage masons to build fresh edifices to satisfy their ego or for solace of their conscience.  Along with the Samanta patrons, the artistic masons, carpenters etc., had changed also and their style of work became somewhat a reflection of the Anglo- Bengali influence.
