Temples of Karnagarh, Paschim Medinipur

Karnagarh, situated in a forest at a distance about 10 km from Midnapore town, bears traces of very old settlement (may be 14th century). One it was a fort and ruins of castles, temples, posts are still found. It became famous for Chuar Bidroho towards the end of the 18th century. The place found its place in some of the medieval texts. Karnagarh is much frequented by the local people as a holy place for Anadilinga Dandeswar Mahadev and Mahamaya temples, which has surprisingly survived the onslaught of time.
