PREFACE

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
AN attempt to cover comprehensively the temples of a highly developed and cultured area like Bengal demands some knowledge of the cultures of the different population groups in Bengal along with those of the neighbouring regions, the trends of historical and social development, the routes and channels by which different religious thoughts became diffused, the invisible links that exist between the different parts of India particularly through temples and legends, the influences which they exert upon one another and various other factors.

There is a common affinity between the temples and legends of one region with another. At a time when communication routes were not well developed, it were the pilgrim centres that brought the different parts of India together in spite of the differences in languages, social customs and cultures. The temples and legends have always had a tremendous integrating influence on the different regions that make up India.
