Temples And Legends Of Bengal Introduction

Bhotbagan is a part of Ghusuri in Howrah City adjoining Calcutta. The name means a Tibetan garden. There is an old Tibetan temple or monastery called the Bhot- Mandir or Bhot-Math, which has given the name to the area.

The building was established by Warren Hastings at the request of the Tashi lama of Tibet. In 1772 the Bhutanese invaded Cooch Behar, where they captured and carried off the Raja. A punitive force sent by the British defeated the Bhutanese, at the request of whose Chief the Tashi Lama interceded and sent an envoy to Warren Hastings.
