Kantaji Temple on Happy New Year 2016

January 9, 2016

I had a yearly holiday for a week (Christmas+ New Year) and went to Dinajpur in late december 2015. I visited several spots in Dinajpur town during the stay and the most significant part was to visit Kantaji Temple in Kaharole(Last time i got there was in February 2009). I already heard that a rejuvenation process was going on the temple and outside the temple courtyard. I found that its true. There are several new structures had been erected didn’t complete yet so i couldn’t able to tell what they were really, probably it belongs to temple authority or funded by the govt.

When i got there, on January 1, that was the ending date of historic Rashmela which takes place every year during November-december , so i was a bit lucky. It was not just a village fair,  its one of the Oldest Hindu religious fair across the region (since the temple erected in late 1700s) with traditional Village antiquities  in there.
