I'm a Japanese living in Delhi. I visited here with a friend living in Kolkata. Otherwise, I didn't notice this temple city of Bishnupur. Nice place with the unique structure. It's like a pyramid with a labyrinth under the roof. Well maintained green lawn also. But, don't expect more than that...

As you drive into the capital city of the Malla kingdom, you feel as if no major development activity has been undertaken here (perception one gets). The road gets very narrow, and is a thoroughfare for bus, auto rickshaws, manual rickshaws and every conceivable form of transport. Inspite of the huge tourism potential, it is evident that the administrators seem... More

A historic landmark built by the Malla Rajas during the days of the British Raj. Looks good with floodlights switched on after darkness sets in. Situated almost in the heart of the town. Nice architecture dating back almost to medieval period.

Rasamancha is located in close proximity to the tourist Lodge. The best part is that it's very well maintained. Least expected. Guides are well informed and for people who like to do it themselves can avail for guide book available at the ticket counter. Thumbs up Archeological society.

Great for lovers of history or architecture. Beautiful terracotta brick structure built on a platform of laterite. Cost for foreigners is 200 rupees and for this price you get entry to two other structures as well

Good place to visit, and see brickwork with a difference. Best time for visit is probably winter. But avoid taking cabs. The roads are too narrow. Take an auto or rickshaw instead.

Excellent place. A must see for everyone to know the rich history of WB. You may take a guide if you wish. But if you are keen to know the history, a guide is must. You have to purchase a ticket costing 5/- by which you can visit other four historical places in Bishnupur which are currently maintained by Archaeological... More
