More Information: If you want a small and short budget tour for a day along with the combination of old ruined mansion and temples nearby Kolkata, Tamluk can be one of the good options for that. It is defines a budget tour because you can avail local transportation for that. In addition you can visit Deulti (Sarat Chandra Kuthi, also known as Sarat Smriti Mandir, is a house museum located in the village of Samta, in the Howrah district of West Bengal) also, best will be if you have a car with you.

Tamluk is well known for its ruined Rajbari and Kapalini (Bhimarupa) Shaktipeeth temple. Best part of Tamluk is you can get all the destinations within 5 kms. Adjacent to ruined Rajbari there is Radhagobinda temple which is nicely maintained by the local people who lived in that temple premises. Local deity Radhagobinda Jieu is being worshipped daily by the local priest and devotees. The temple premises is very neat and clean and well maintained. The color of the temple is saffron which gives your eyes peace and the two adjacent temple with deul shaped stand one after another. Inside of one temple it is already told that Radhagobinda Jieu is worshipped, in another one lord Shiva has been placed. Local devotees are very polite to the outsiders and they try to give as much as information regarding ruined Rajbari. Even though most of the part of the Rajbari is almost ruined still the structures remains attracted to the history lovers. Inside of the premises most of the parts are covered by long grasses and there is one Banyan tree which covers a large part of the Rajbari. The archs in front are still remains so royal. Not a single part of this ruins mansion is suitable for living humans and by sight I understood it’s pretty hard to renovate now a days. So it stands as it is. People come and go, see the palace, take pictures and that’s all.

Another temple is Mahaprabhu temple which is nearby to the Tamluk Jain. The entire area is very much cleaned and maintained. Inside of the temple Jagannath ji and shri Krishna are placed side by side. The ambience of the place is very much religious and relaxing. The shape of main temple is pretty uncommon than any other temples.

Nearby there is a small maintained lake. Once it used to be a huge ground where patriot Matangini Hazra had sacrificed her life for the country. So they have placed a statue of the lady and a small monument with respect to her sacrifice.

Kapalini (Bhimarupa) Shaktipeeth temple is situated towards Rupnarayan river, a few kilometres away from Mahaprabhu temple. This area is also very peaceful and being a Saktipeeth, local devotees and people assembled here now and then. After seeing the Shaktipeeth one can move toward Rupnarayan bank which is nearby. People go there for relaxation, hang out, and also experience beautiful sunset. Even if the area is mostly congested, it’s a good idea to roam the place with local transport. It’s good to have a market place in Jail area, hence you can find local food shops.

So plan for Tamluk for a weekend and ream around the place. Hope you will like it.
