THE TIBETAN TEMPLE

The other Dasnami Mahants of Bengal, of whom the most influential was the Mahant of Tarakeswar in the Hooghly district, elected the next Mahant, Trilokh Chandra Gir, in 1905.  The Mahantship has continued in the line of the Gir Gosains.

The temple consists of a two-storied building, in which the absence of arches is noticeable.  Both Hindu and Lamaistic or Tibeto-Buddhistic gods are worshipped; and there is a Tibetan Dungten, cubiform in shape, like a Hindu samadhi mandir or tomb and surmounted by Siva's phallus, which is kept in a small low-roofed room having a Bengali inscription on its door-top.

Inside the temple a number of Chinese and Tibetan deities like Arya Tara, Mahakal Bhairav, Bajra Bhrukuti and Padmapani are installed.  There are now a number of samadhis of the deceased Mahants.
