This temple was built by Krishna Singha son of the Malla
King Gopal Singha in 1729 A.D. Is possible to see this evidence in a dedicatory inscription.
As almost all the temples in Bishnupur is built with terracotta bricks, the only material available for construction in the area.
Bishnupur is a real gem for the traveler with dozens of temples scattered around and inside the city. Nevertheless few tourist/travelers visit Bishnupur a city well connected with Calcutta by train and bus.
