Terracotta temples of Bengal - I

  • Currently 3.00/5

The Terracotta temples represent the culture of our state during 17th-19th centuries.Not the religion alone.Because , practices of the then society/community and literature feature in the plaques on the temples. The most famous of these temples @ Bishnupur were lighted in the night. Without crowds around,against the backdrop of a dark sky, these temples look like surrealistic dreams from a distance. Shadow of the terracotta motifs and figures add a visual dimension to the plaques which cannot be described and fully captured in a camera. Apart from the history of the temples , their patrons and analysis of interesting features from the view point of an architect ,iconography is an important aspect that attracted me to terracotta temples of Bengal.I have to edit the photos and 'discover' the stories (mostly mythological) the panels tell.Another important aspect is the respect for various sects of Hinduism and even for persons from different faith.
