Lalji Temple

Lalji temple

The Lalji temple Bishnupur, dedicated  to Sri Radhika and  Sri Krishna  , which stands on a high point, is of the Bengali style of architecture. In its verandah is preserved a stone slab (lying loose) with an inscription in Bengali characters, dated 1577 Saka (,1655 A.D.), recording the erection of a Navaratna temple of Krishna by Rani Lakshmanavati, wife of Raja Hari Narayan.

In front of the Lalji temple is a natmandir or dancing hall, to the west of which stands an Orissan tower with a porch in front dedicated to Raghunathji. The outer yard is separated from the inner by a wall, and contains a small Pancharatna temple of Kameswar Siva with an inscription dated 1577 Saka; to its south-west lies a circular pavement for the rasmancha. The whole is enclosed by a high wall, with a large gateway to the east; over the gateway is a slab with a Bengali inscription ascribing the erection of the thakurbari to the Burdwan Raj in 1238 B.S. (1831 A.D.).

In front of the gateway are two cars, which are drawn on the Dashara day, the smaller being that of Lalji and the larger that of Raghunathji. The cost of the establishment and of the festivals is met from the income of a debottar estate set apart for the purpose by the Burdwan Raj.
