DEUL AT GARPANCHKOT2

Garhpanchakot

The founder of Panchakot state, King Damodar Shekhar Singh Deo and the subsequent kings of the state made pioneering efforts in establishing temples in Garhpanchakot ( Neturia Block) during the 17th century. Most of these temples built at the foothills of Panchet have perished. Ruins of two stone temples can be
found, one of which is in a better condition.

Two 'Pancharatna' temples (typical architectural style of Bengal) exist in this area. The one on the western side is in a broken state. The other which is centrally located still stands with its intricate terracotta designs of duck, creepers, Khol player, dancing lady etc. A pair of temples termed as “Jorabangla” is also in a state of collapse.
Remains of an “Ekratnamandir” (typical architectural style of
Bengal), a terracotta temple also lies here at an elevated position than the rest.
