TREASURES OF HOOGHLY: Hooghly is a treasure trove of terracotta temple. Visit to the nearing terracotta temples which dates back from 17th century onwards is a must while visiting Guptipara during the Rath.Stone has always been in short supply in the vast flood plains of Bengal. Hence the architects had to restore to other substitute. As clay was easily available the burnt clay bricks soon became a good substitute of stone. This gave rise to a new form of temple architecture and lead to the construction of elaborately decorated terracotta temples.
Terracotta literally means baked earth in Italian but West Bengal has the distinction of housing some of the finest terracotta art in the world.
