complex, Kalna
Brindaban Chandra's Math, terracotta temple complex is in Kalna, West Bengal. Kalna is around 90 kms from Kolkata. By road it should take around 2 to 3 hrs. This complex has four terracotta temples dating back to the 17th and 18th century. These temples are beautiful. Some of the paintings on the walls are absolutely awe inspiring.

I first heard of terracotta temples a few months ago when I read about it on a blog. This is a place I'd love to see.

Nice pictures, Ranjana. It must have been nice and cool in there, right?
