THE TEMPLES IN HOOGLY

Rajballavi Devi is taken to be another form of Chandi. In the book 'Pitha Nirnai' Rajabalhat has been described as a Saktapith, a place for the worship of Sakti and has mentioned the deity there as Chandi. Even today the legend mentioned about Rajballavi Devi persists. Seven small boats are made and just before the Astami puja six of them are sunk in the tank adjoining the temple and then only the Astami puja worship commences.

Apart from the temple of Rajballavi Devi there are a number of other temples at this village. The temple of Radha Kanta Jiu was built in 1744. It is a typical fine speci men of a Bangla Mandir. The temple has unfortunately lost much of its original artistic wall by thoughtless whitewashes. There are also other temples of Sridhar and Damodar at the village built near about the same time.
