Bishnupur lies just 151km away from Kolkata. This town of terracotta temples and man-made lakes is proof of the Malla rulers of 16th century. Since Bishnupur had no stone for construction, the Malla kings built terracotta temples to celebrate their love for Krishna. Terracotta tiles carve out stories from the Ramayana and Mahabharata.
