  • This south facing temple of Lord Krishna is very near to Chhabighar bus stoppage on G.T road ( western side) and nearly 2km from Chandannagar station of Howrah - Bandel rail route. The areas of Chandannagar like Boro, Gondalpara, Khalisani are very old and during French reign Chandannagar was known as Farasdanga. This Dalan type temple with Ekbangla ( or Dochala ) style mandapa( two slopping roofs meet in a line) in front of the main shrine is on raised plinth and was built by Indra Narayan Chaudhary in 1740AD. There were some spots on temple walls of firing from Cannon during Anglo French battle of eighteenth century. The dimensions of the main shrine is 16m(L)*3.5m(W). Dimensions of the Ekbangla style mandapa is 16m(L)*4.3m(W). Inside the garvamandir Lord Krishna is worshipped daily from 7am to 8am,12noon to 1pm and 7pm to 9pm. In annual SriSriKrishna Janmashtomi utsab ( Bangla month Bhadra) huge number of religious people come here every year.
