Apart from these places in Lansdowne itself, Tarkeshwar lies further away....
This is a very important place of worship, especially for the Shavite sect. The Takeshwar Temple is a beautiful pilgrimage site on the banks of Ganges. It was built by Raja Bharamalla in the 18th Century. The temple can be visited the whole year round but the time of Shivaratri has a different charm altogether. There is also a fair that is organised at this time every year. Monday is considered to be the most auspicious day to visit the temple, and bathing in the Dudhpukur Tank is a holy ritual followed by worshippers. It is said that the waters of the tank have divine powers which can fulfil your wishes. The Buddha temple nearby is also an attraction here. The Tarakeshwar Lodge is the only option to stay here though it won’t provide you with any fancy facilities.
