The Baranagar Temple complex is chiefly the creation of Rani Bhabani of Natore.
Splendid example of Bengal terracotta work. Exqusitely modeled clay tablets depicting scenes from Ramayana. Also marvellous examples of panels with depictions of classical design elements: floral, animal, geometric, fantastic as well as tableaus of everyday life.

Marvelous view of beautiful terracotta temple , showing the heights reached in art and culture during Bengal's Renaissance period.
It would have been better if your friend's had not posed for you in this photo, I mean it is always good for personal collection but not for uploading. I enjoyed it anyways. Thanks for sharing.
