KIRITESVARI TEMPLE

The jungles were cleared and roads were made.  After the death of Bhagaban Ray his youngest brother Bangabinod Ray became the Kanungo and obtained large devottor and lakhraj (rent-free lands) from the Emperor.

One of the devottor properties was the area where the deity Kiritesvari was installed and it was described as Bhabanithan. After Bangabinod the post of the Kanungo and the property went to Bhagaban's son Hari Narain.  Darpa Narain, son of Hari Narain became quite famous and resided in Dacca as the Kanungo. 

It was in Darpa Narain's time that Azimush shah grandson of Aurangazeb was the ruler of Bengal. Murshid Kuli Khan came to Dacca as the Dewan of Bengal.  Murshid Kuli Khan did not get on well with Azimush shah.  He left Dacca and came to Mukhsudabad became Murshidabad.
