This structure falls on the way to/from Shyam Rai temple. It is a featureless rectangular building with creepers and grass growing all over & around it because ASI has not started restoring it (yet). Our guide told us that it was used as an execution...More

Its now just a roadside brickwork, standing alone and unimpressive. It stands as Ekaant.The picture itself speaks a million words about lack of maintenance and gross neglect. When will we be responsible enough to preserve such things.

A weird-looking rectangular structure. A lot of history associated with it. No one can enter this place. Liked it.

As the name suggests this is the execution site for the convicted prisoners. These days it is not open to the visitors. In case you're visiting to Bankura, this is a place you should come across while traveling around.

Execution room or Grannary - nobody knows for sure. However this monument stands pretty close to the Rani Bandh area in Bishnupur.
