Temples And Legends Of Bengal Introduction

Temples also have their periods of glory and decay. This is often the fate of those temples that are set up by and propped up ruling chiefs or an aristocrat landlord. The decline of the family with whose prestige, wealth and power the temple is intimately associated means the decline of the temple also.

Ultimately the temple, once a place of worship, pomp and glory becomes the scene of desolation, ruin and nostalgia. Even the images are desecrated or removed, the carved walls and other pieces of sculpture are taken out and utilized elsewhere. Jungles grow and jackals stalk in the area where once temple-bells used to jingle with the chant of mantras.

Author - P. C. Roy Choudhury
