THE TEMPLES IN HOOGHLY

Introduction

The district of Hooghly has the district of Burdwan on the north, the river Hooghly on the east, the district of Howrah on thesouth and the districts of Midnapore, Bankura and Burdwan on the west.Hooghly district is mainly the product of its rivers. The three large rivers,the Hooghly,theDamodar and the Dwarkeswar with their extensive and violent oscillations have determined the physiography of the district and have given rise to the smaller streams.

In the rains the riversand particularly theDamodar River in recent years have controlled the fury of the river in the floods and that water is now diverted for irrigation. Excepting the Goghat Thana on the north west corner touching Midnapore, Bankura and Burdwan districts, the entire district is alluvial in soil and absolutely free from forests.The northwest corner is a continua- tion of the uplands of Bishnupur in Bankura district and is lateritic with scrubby jungles.
