Raja Pratap Chandra built this “Rekh-Deul” style of temple structure in 1849. The artists of Bengal depicted various kinds of Hindu epics, mythological life of Sree Chaitanna, Ravan, Durga, Abhiggan Shakuntala and day to day features of 18th century of Bengal. It has cosmic type arts as the artists have used the form of dragon like the Chinese and used multimedia -terracotta and pankha. It is simply magnificent.
