Brick-built deul at Bhandirban near Suri, Birbhum Dist. in Bengal Page28

The Bakreswar waters are held to be beneficial in cases of chronic bronchitis and skin disease. The Pandas claim that the waters will cure rheumatism and diabetes. The springs are as good as Rajgir springs in Bihar. Rajgir springs have been somewhat of an attraction with the development of Rajgir. Some more tourist amenities have to be offered to Bakreswar before the place could be made attractive to the tourists. As a matter of fact Bakreswar has the additional advantage of having a few cold springs in close proximity which Rajgir has not got.

The spring’s discharges into a rivulet, which runs past them and joins a small, stream about 200 yards from the temples. The hot springs are frequented by barren women and women suffering from miscarriage. It is believed they derive special benefit from diving under a submerged arch in one of the reservoirs. Captain Sherwill found that the temperature of the hottest spring was 162 degrees Fahr, and of the coolest 128 degrees at noon on 28th December 1850, the temperature of the air in shade being 77 degrees, while the temperature of the stream above the influence of the hot springs was 83 degrees. From the hottest spring about 120 cubic feet of water per minute were ejected. Bakreswar with her manifold attractions has undoubtedly tourist potential.
