A CHINESE TEMPLE

Achipur had another importance.  It had a gun powder magazine at which vessels proceeding to Calcutta were required to deposit all gunpowder on board, except 100 lbs. Which the Captains were allowed to keep in order firing salutes or signals of distress.   When bound outward, the Captains would take back the deposited gunpowder.  

This precaution was necessary as it was considered that in case of an explosion of a large quality of gunpowder on board the ships lying near the town might cause considerable damage to the port and to the town.
