Kharagpur Tour Overview

Paschim Medinipur district or West Midnapore district is among one of the biggest districts of West Bengal. It was formed on January 1, 2002 after the Partition of Midnapore into Paschim Medinipur and Purba Medinipur. Medinipur district is much enriched in its archaeology. Pre-historic features of this region can be proved from its Stone Age evidences, which are collected from the river-beds of Subarnarekha, Kansavati and Tarapheni. Apart from rich history and architecture it is also famous for traditional Indian art which is recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage name "Pattachitra".
Patachitra, a unique cultural tradition of Bengal, draws inspiration from the mythological tales of India. The word Pata comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Patta’, meaning “cloth” and Chitra refers to “painting”. In Patachitra, stories are painted as frames on long scrolls and the Patuas who paint Patas, gradually unfurl them while presenting the story through their songs.

After fresh up proceed for sightseeing visit Temple village Pathra, Karnagarh temple, Pattachitra haat.

Pathra: On the bank of the river Kangsabati, is a village of temples. There are 34 temples in the village, all over 200 years old.this nondescript hamlet is a treasure trove for those who like to travel back in time.The history of Pathra goes back to the Gupta age, when the place was the hinterland of Tamralipta port, a gateway to southeast Asia. From 8th Century to 12th Century, it was an important hub for Hindus, Jains and Buddhists. A majestic Vishnu Lokeshwar statue dug out in the village in October 1961 revealed both Hindu and Buddhist influences, indicating that practitioners of both religions frequented Pathra..
The turning point in the history of the village came in 1732, when Nawab Alivardi Khan appointed Bidyananda Ghoshal as the revenue collector of Ratnachawk pargana. Bidyananda established temple after temple in the village, making it a major draw for Hindu pilgrims. The nawab, however, was not too pleased with Bidyananda’s work. He was thrown into prison and then sentenced to death. Legend has it that the elephant that was to crush Bidyananda’s head refused to do so. The village reportedly gets its name from the incident.

Pattachitra Haat: The village Naya in Pingla is home to around 250 Patuas, a unique community of folk artists who are painters, lyricists, singers and performers-all in one. The tourists can interact with the artists, visit their painted houses where artists make those Patas and learn about how they make colours from the locally available plants and flowers.
