JAGARNATHPUR

The construction of the Jagarnath temple at Jagarnathpur was not an isolated attempt at building a Hindu temple in a land where predominantly the animistic tribes lived. Round about the time the Jagarnath temple at Jagarnathpur was built, another Hindu temple was reared at Chutia, which is now a part of the town of Ranchi. The Chutia temple is a small square enclosure, with four flanking bastions and a well in the centre, which is approached by a gradually descending, covered passage.

There is an inscription on the northern wall of the temple, which shows that the temple was constructed in Samvat 1742 (1685 A.D.) by one Hari Brahmachari, the Guru of the Raja during the reign of Raja Raghunath, the fiftieth in descent from Raja Phanimukut. At Doisa or Doisanagar, another village 40 miles south-west of Ranchi, there axe ruins of ancient palaces of the Rajas of Chotanagpur. Round the ruins of the palaces are numerous temples, one of which contains curious underground chambers.

The temples and buildings are of carved granite. There is an inscription on the temple of Kapilnath, which bears 1767 Samvat or 1710 A.D.
