My Christmas Week Photolog NO. 1
This year it was different, it was unique, it was both stressful and fun full but it is Christmas time and we needed to celebrate. So this is my Christmas into a photolog with a blog.
The first stop is a Durga temple, the idol was gifted by a Nepali businessman. Then we went to Shahib kuthi, well most of the pictures are taken by me and some other by my papa. The place overlooks the Ganges, I clicked the swans and the Shahib Kuthi/kutir. Oh, We played for so long.
Heading off, to the next destination, Trannath Bari, The house of the legendary zamindar of Panihati, Tran-Nath Bandyopadhyay / Trannath Bandyopadhyay. He is the one behind the set up of Panihati municipality. He was a stout-hearted man, both courageous and educated, he was also a religious person who established a kali temple, The Trannath Kali Temple. Oh, Our next destination. Before we go to the temple, I want to tell you about amima Chakraborty, who talked to us in Trannath Bari.
Now, off to our final destination. Trannath Kali Bari. This kali bari/ kali temple was built by Mr Bandyopadhyay. He worshipped in it every day and took a bath in the Ganges. The place is also called Pancho Dhatu Kali Bari, meaning the Kali Temple where the Maa Kali Idol is made up of 5 metals. Here My father took the pictures, the temple is just opposite to the Satsang. Last but not the least we clicked the picture of these cute puppies sleeping, hope they don’t get angry.
I also went to Gobindo Kumar House, where the entrance is not permitted but I entered a saw a glance of it all, I also got a view of the past at the same time, Rabindranath Tagore also came to the place 3 times, once when he was 10/11 when dengue was a pandemic, and next when he thought of giving up his Knight Degree, and last time when the place was renamed Gobindo Kumar House and there was a marriage over there. Then a person and his dog came and started telling us to go away, not allowed and all that rubbish you know, but I could not take a picture.
Okay, now we are done, now let me tell you how you can take this route and make this a memorable journey, so starting your journey come at first to Panihati, Don’t take a cab or car, use a rickshaw to travel after coming to Panihati, now Panihati the land filled with history and culture, here you will get everything don’t worry, I am leaving a map too over here.
As You can see the places are near and it would not take more than 3 hours to travel the whole journey, but I would suggest you to go to the places as fast as you can because with time the houses are getting old and people are breaking the old homes and creating apartments and all, we are unable to save our culture and tradition, history and past. Trannath Bari is still open only google shows closed, please visit the place fast or it will be too late. People are breaking the houses and making big apartments, I am over too sad for the same reason. Now that was my experience, but I would tell you to take a look into the places. This was my first travel blog.
We need to save our heritage, Thanks for reading and coming with me on my journey
