Photographer's Note

BLACK AND WHITE VERSION OF MY YESTERDAY'S COLOURED PHOTO. THINK IT SUITS THE ATMOSPHERE BETTER.

_________
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.
________
I like this frame with the observer who is really feeling and enjoying the terracotta work. I also like the soft light of morning on this brick built temple. Now I am sharing it with you. Hope you'll like it.
