‪|| Tour de Bandel ||
There was a long wish to go for local site-seeing of Bandel. The bucket list includes - Hangseshwari Temple, Bandel Church, Hoogly Imambara & Lahiri Baba Ashram.
• So finally selected this Sunday and started our journey by car in the morning 8 o’clock. We took Kalyani Expressway and followed the same for next 44Kms. After Jounpur More, we took left and reached the famous 220 years old Hangseshwari Temple built by Raja Nrisingha Deb Roy Mahasay.
• The architecture of the temples is the representation of "Tantrik Satchakrabhed".The structure tells about the structure of a Human Body. Because the five storied temple is like the five parts of our Human body, such as: Bajraksha, Ira, Chitrini, Pingala and Sushumna. The main shrine is surrounded by 12 Shiva lingas. The main deity is quite different from traditional Kali idol.
• Here the form of Kali is sitting on a Lotus which is coming out from the Navel of Shiva lying down & with one feet of Hangseshwari touching the the chest of Shiva as in the form of Dakhina Kali but without a protruding tongue, which is only superficially attached on the night of Kali Pujo.
• Spoke to the pujari and got to know that the main deity is also 220 years old made of Neem wood, painted once in 12 years. Bhog is available @ Rs.40 for which you need to collect coupon from the main temple by 9 o’clock.
• Beside the main shrine, there’s an eye catching Terra cotta temple - Ananta Basudeba temple of Shri Narayana in its four-armed form which is very rare in Bengal. It is built in the traditional eka-ratna style, with curved cornices. The tower on top of the temple is octagonal. The terracota works depict stories from the great Indian epics Ramayana and Mahabharata, as well as from lilas of Krishna. From a local resident, got to know that the Ananta Basudeba temple is much older than the current main shrine of Maa Hangseshwari.
• The complex also hosts beautiful Gardens and seasonal flowers. There’s a place to deposit your shoes @ Rs.2. The temple remains open from morning 6 AM to 12:30 PM and thereby distribution of Bhog at 1 PM. It re-opens at 4PM. There’s a shop inside the temple where one can buy idols, photos, key chains & books at reasonable rates. There’s a car parking zone chargeable @ Rs.25.
• The Rajbari is just opposite to the temple complex where no lineage stays. Only few Rajsewaks resides there. Beside the Rajbari there is also a very old building which the locals say was once a hospital made by the Rajbari for the locals.
• From Hangseshwari temple, we headed towards another famous destination – Bandel Church which was founded in 1599. Some points to note while visiting Bandel church on Sunday. Mass service is performed till 12:30PM when no visitors are allowed inside the church. One can still enjoy the church complex, roof top and other areas. There’s a shop inside the church where one can buy souvenirs at reasonable rates. There's also a Ship's Mast of a Portuguese ship from 1655 which has been restored here in a separate enclosure. Here we ate our breakfast from a very clean and hygienic restaurant – Lokenath Family Restaurant with Peas Kochuri. Cars are parked on road which are also chargeable.
• Next, we headed towards Hoogly Imambara which is also very near to the Church. Entry fee is Rs.10 per head. Hoogly Imambara is a Shia Muslim congregation hall and mosque started by Muhammad Mohsin in 1841 and completed in 1861. The mosque has intricate designs and texts from Quran engraved on the wall which is really magnificent.
• The Imambara complex also hosts a wonderful Clock Tower or Minarets which is approx 150 ft high and one can reach the top by climbing 152 stairs. Separate stairs for Gents & Ladies. The panoramic view from the top is just unexplainable. At the backyard of the Imambara, a beautiful Sun Clock which gives an exact time of the day. Behind the Imambara there’s the beautiful Ganges and on the shore there are small stalls of Phuchka & Gola. One can book small boats to roam on the river Hoogly. The cost is Rs. 150 for 3 persons for 30 minutes. Cars are parked on road which are also chargeable @ Rs.50 which is really too high.
• Next, we headed towards Lahiri Baba Ashram which is approx 8kms from there but by then the Ashram was closed and re-opens at 3:30 PM. The road towards Ashram is extremely narrow.
The day tour was really replenishing from city’s honking, crowd and pollution.‬

‪I went there during Christmas last year along with my family.
It was an extremely beautiful place to visit.
We left for the place early in the morning.
Our driver decided to take Kalyani expressway instead of G.T. Road in the morning.
While returning we took G.T. Road.
It was indeed a wise decision.

What did I love about this place?

1. The place is an epitome of mystery- beautiful picturesque surrounding, neat and clean.

2. Ample parking place is available.

3. Restaurants are located nearby( cheap rates and hygienic food)

4. Lots of souvenir shops are present outside the church(cheap prices, good quality). There's a souvenir shop inside the church too.

5. A good place for an outing with family and friends.

6. Other places of interests are located nearby.

7. Lots of public vehicles are available to take visitors to stations and other places of interest.

What I did not like about the place?

1. I loved every part of our journey. However, some may feel that the place is a bit crowded.

My advice to others:

1. Take Kalyani expressway while going to Bandel from Kolkata. The scenic beauty is simply too pleasing to eyes and to the soul. The road is also less crowded in the morning. [ Take this way in the morning only, as at night this road is not safe just like Delhi Road ]

2. If you are returning back to Kolkata late ( evening or later) , take the G.T. Road. It is the safest option.

3. Buy souvenirs from the shop inside the church, it has gifts made in Italy that are not too costly.‬
