How to go: Take local train from Howrah which is going to Arambag-Goghat. Get down at Haripal railway station. Take trekker from railway station which will drop you at Ramhatitala and they will charge around 15 Rs.. Or you can take local bus from railway station (bus service is much better) up to Ramhatitala. From there you can walk down and enjoy the village culture and reach Rajrajeswar temple, Dwarhatta. By walk it takes around 15 min. Ask direction to the local people and go ahead. Or you can take Rickshaw which may charge around 15 Rs. again.

Next you come back to Ramhatitala again and take another trekker for Antpur Ramakrishna Math which will drop you there within 10 min, they will charge 11 Rs. each. There only you will get to see Radhagobindajiu temple, Rashmancha, Dolmancha, Chandi mandap, Fuleshwar-Jaleshwar shiva temple etc.

Then you have to take another trekker or bus or toto (a bit rare) to visit Rajbalhat temple. On the way you have to get down for Radha Gobinda temple which is nearby Rajbalhat girls high school (For this you have to go inside the village following narrow lane beside Rajbalhat bazar which takes around 15 min by walk) and another temple is there which is Sridhar Damoder temple which is there nearby Rajbalhat Bazar.

More Information: Points to remember

  • On the way to Rajrajeswar temple, you will find a lot of local weaver hub (Tanti). You will get to see how they make bengal 'Tant' sarees. You will definitely feel good seeing their work and talk to them.
  • You should try lunch from Antpur Ramakrishna Math. Coupon prize is Rs. 50 which you can get from office room of Math.
  • They will start providing lunch at 1 pm. Make sure before lunch you will finish visiting Ramkrishna math temple and specially Radhagobindajiu temple nearby (which remains closed from 1:30 pm to 5:45 pm approx).
  • Once Sridhar Damoder temple was very famous for colorful terracotta artwork, but now you won't find the same. The main attraction of the temple has lost due to the newly painted outer color and local houses around.
  • If you are depending on trekker all the time make sure you are strong enough to make a risky journey as most of the time you have to hang outside of the trekker due to lack of seat inside. Yes people usually do the same. So better to avail bus service.
