An 18th century temple hidden amidst sublime greenery

‘Garpanchakot’

Location: Purulia, West Bengal, India

Situated only at 250 kilometers from Kolkata. If you want to unwind and relax in the lap of nature, this is the place to be. The panchet hill offers an amazing picturesque and panoramic hilltop view of the whole area. Apart from the lush  greenery and beautiful landscapes, this place is associated with a 1500 years old history of the Singh Deo dynasty. The only remains of this kingdom are the temple ruins and a few broken pillars of the palace on the Panchet foothills that stands still as the silent testimony to the Bargi attack during 18th century.
