Photographer's Note

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. The Bhabaniswara, CharBangla, Jod-Bangla and Rajrajeshwari are the main temples.
________
some information about this Char bangla temple :
In this frame you can see the famous Char-bangla temple (4 temples). These four temples enclosing a small courtyard, were built by Rani Bhavani of Natore. Each temple has a 3-arched openings and 3 shivalingas. Richly decorated faceds illustrated the best in the ornamental brickwork of Bengal. The eastern temple is ornamented with delicate plaster work. The decorative themes which vary, are drawn mainly from the Hindu epics and puranas.
