THE TIBETAN TEMPLE

After his return in 1785, he settled as Mahant or abbot at the Bhot-bagan monastery, which  was regularly used by the Tibetan traders visiting Calcutta, for whom he built rest houses. This monastery was known to have treasures as the Tibetans and others visiting used to give very valuable offerings. 

It was sad that in 1795 it was attacked by a band of dacoits, whom Puran Gir gallantly resisted until he was pierced through by a spear and died ultimately.   Four of the dacoits were caught and hanged on a gallow set up in the monastery. The next Mahant was Daljit Gir, and his successors were Kalit Gir, Bilas Gir and Umrao Gir.
