A town famous for its terracotta temples, pottery and Baluchari saris
The first sound that greeted us as we entered Bishnupur was that of a bhajan being sung in chorus. I had dozed off in the car while driving with friends from Kolkata and the dholak (percussion) and khanjani (cymbal) beats jolted me out of my sleep. It took a few minutes to get my bearings before I was ready to start my trip of this ancient temple town. We made a quick lunch stop at the West Bengal Tourism Development Corporation guest house, where we were staying for the weekend, before heading out.
