THE TEMPLES IN MIDNAPORE

Introduction

The district of Midnapore has a very high place for her contribution to the past history and cultures of Bengal and as such plays a significant role for the future. The physiographical location of the district is on the boarders of Orissa and Bihar and the district has great affinities with the
districts of Chotanagpur and Santal Parganas in Bihar. Midnapore district has probably not yet been subjected to a severe archaeological x-ray but from time to time relics have been found which show that the district has a great antiquity.

Some stone implements have been found in Midnapore district, which are similar to the specimens that have earlier been discovered in Singhbhum and the old Manbhum district now distributed over Purulia district in Bengal and Dhanbad district in Bihar.
