Tour Comment

  1. Paschim Medinipur district being a vast area to cover, I had to include many of its heritage monuments in Purba Medinipur exploration program despite doing a separate exploration program on Paschim Medinipur. These areas are located in places under jurisdiction of Pingla and Sabang police station of Paschim Medinipur district
  2. Residents of Purba Medinipur and places under jurisdiction of Pingla and Sabang police station are well aware of the temples in their location which is why most of the places could be easily located
  3. In future exploration programs in both Purba and Paschim Medinipur exploration program, more books and reference needs to be consulted as because some sources have incorrect report about location and names of such heritage places.
  4. Some heritage structures do not exists anymore as they have collapsed or have been demolished like the dalan temple at Kerur
