Bishnupur - Past glory with Present attire

Bishnupur in West Bengal, a city approx. 180 kms. Away from Kolkata used to exist long before Kolkata was formed . This city was enriched by various temples decorated with terracotta work ( art work on burnt mud) during 1620-1650 by Mallar Kings which still stands there to prove the amazing talent our forefathers used to have. The more amazing part is, the terracotta work still exists and it's the livelihood of many artisans over there. The activities can be watched on our visit to this place and articles like horses, elephants, different idols made out of mud will surely attract you to purchase as these are not only beautiful but even very cheap . The other thing which will surely compel one to praise and purchase is the Bishnupuri silk sarees named as Baluchari, Swarnachari specifically woven over there by skilled artisans. One can travel to Bishnupur by train from Howrah station as many express trains are available and for outskirt visits like Sushuniya hill, Mukut-Monipur Dam hired car is preferable. Hotels, Restaurant are available with cleanliness well maintained . While moving around outskirts, I will suggest not to miss Jaipur Jungle and the air-base inside it, British used to hide fighter planes during the second world war and surely the place is thrilling
