THE TEMPLES IN BURDWAN

Introduction

In the British times the nomenclature of many places got anglicized. Thus Mathura became Muttra, Varanasi was Benaras and Kalikata became Calcutta. In the same manner Burdwan was substituted for Bardhaman. Bardhaman or Burdwan historically a very important district from before the British days adjoins the Santal Paragons and Dhanbad districts in Bihar and Purulia, Bankura, Hooghly, Nadia, Murshidabad and Birbhum districts in Bengal.  

The portion of the Burdwan district border- ing Santal Paragons, Dhanbad, Purulia and Bankura has a different lateritic: soil forma- tion and the other portion is alluvial. The district contains some of the important industrial zones of Bengal and the area adjoining the Damodar River is fast becoming fully industrialized. This belt also containscoal and other valuable minerals.
