Amazing art work
Dec 2019 • Family
This temple also had amazing art work, like the other temples of Bishnupur. But each temple has different types of art work, although all are of terracotta.
You should also not miss this architecture.

Awesome place

Worth a visit, if one longs to delve deep into the history of Bengal. The "pora mati" architecture is just jaw dropping.

Another uniquectemple of Bishnupur
Mar 2019 • Family
This is yet another unique temple of terracota style. It is essentially a twin temple and hence gives an unique view which is different from the rest of the temples. And this is a relatively newer temple and hence in a much better condition. IN fact there terracota depiction has a bit of medieval history as well. Definitely a must visit.

JORBANGLA TEMPLE
Feb 2019 • Couples
Built by Malla King Raghunath Singh in 1655 AD, the temple made of laterite bricks has an appearance of two thatched huts joined together and surmounted by a single tower. The temple's roofs and walls have classical Chala style of architecture in terracotta. The panels and walls depict the lives of the Royalty and stories from Epics.

One of the prime temples in Bishnupur. Beautifully constructed by the ancient kings. Surrounded by the other 2 temples one of the must visit place. Also don't forget to purchase the bankura horses made of terracotta sold in front of this temple.

This was built by a Malla King more than 350 years ago and is situated within the town of Bishnupur and is easily reachable. The temple has the appearance of two thatched huts joined together. Its walls and roofs have unique Terracotta type of architecture. This deserves a visit by any tourist visiting Bishnupur
