A CHINESE TEMPLE

Introduction

There is Chinese temple at village Achipur in Hooghly district, which recalls past history.  The village is situated 15 miles south-west of Alipur in Calcutta and 6 miles south-west of Budge with which it is connected by the Orissa Trunk Road. 

It is commonly believed that a Chinese businessman, Tong Achew, who lived there and gave the name of the village, set up the temple. Tong Achew is commonly referred to in the old records as Atchew. It is recorded in history as Atchew.  It is recorded in history that he was given a grant of land by Warren Hastings and had
sponsored a sugar factory at the village.
