Lala Babu Mandir

About

Lal Babu temple was built in 1810 by a wealthy Bengali Kayath (landlord) named Krishna Chandra Singh also famous by the name of Lala Babu in the nearby locality. The temple has a large courtyard surrounded by huge solid stone walls with the vaulted gateway at each end. The temple building is 60 feet long in the form of a quadrangle with the central section of three vaults. The temple exhibits excellent craftsmanship character and a form of rich modern architecture. The two spires or shikharas of the temple are so wisely designed that although being plain in nature their smooth surface will hardly be spoilt by rain and dust. Lal Babu also built the Ghats at the tanks of Radha Kund. Almost at the age of forty he renounced the world and became a vairagi (saint). Inside the temple sanctorum, on the main altar are installed the beautiful deities of Lord Krishna and Radha known as Krishna Chandrama. Thus the temple is also famous by the name of Krishna Chandrama Temple.
