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.

What do you do when you feel blue? some meet friends, maybe gulp ice cream or find solace in music. Me? well, I get high on movies. Anything caught on camera that I find intriguing keeps me tranquil. So, here goes my  ‘To Watch list’ for next couple of weeks! 1. Shala – A movie about teenage love, friendship in rural India in the 70s. I came across this movie very recently and the storyline attracted me instantly. images shala 2. Margarita, with a straw – I have been wanting to watch this movie ever since I heard the name. The story is even more ME than the name itself. Margarita,_with_a_Straw_-_poster 3. Children of heaven – Already seen it a couple of years back and have seldom seen such a gentle and warm movie. Have to watch it again!
