I have always been intrigued by ancient architecture and historical places. So, on my recent visit to my home-town, Kolkata, when I read about Bishnupur – a place of scattered terracotta temples, I made up my mind to plan a trip there, and having a family who never denied travelling, the trip was planned for the next day. We took our car and drove through Durgapur via the Grand Trunk Road to reach Bishnupur. It took around 4 hrs to reach our destination.
PS: Bishnupur is well connected by roadways and railways. The nearest airport is Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International at a distance of 140km from the town. Also, there are regular trains that commute between Howrah and Bishnupur Railway Station.
