Near Azimganj is the fascinating Baranagar temple complex built by Rani Bhabani (1714-1793), the Zamindar of Natore. The brick-built temples are considered to be amongst the best examples of Bengal Terracotta art.
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.
