KIRITESVARI TEMPLE

With the setting of the Moslem rule and the advent of the British rule the glory that was Kiritesvari came to an end.

At one time Kiritesvari temple was what the Kalighat temple is today in Calcutta. Nawab Zafar Ali Khan was administered the Charanmrit or Kiritesvari Devi by his faithful friend and counselor Maharaja Nand Kumar just before his death.  In more recent time Raja Ram Krishna of Natore did some repairs to Kiritesvari temple. He used to go to the temple whenever he would come to Murshidabad.

Kirtitesvar temple is all nostalgia now.5  In the rainy season it is difficult to go to the temple, as the marshes become full of water and snakes and insects abound.

5 The meal is now held on every Tuesday during Magh month. It is not known when the change was made (District Gazetteer of Murshidabad, by L.S.S. O’Malley, (1014), p. 80.
