Dinhata Madan Mohan Temple


       In accordance with the royal administrative policy of Cooch Behar, arrangements for establishment of Madan Mohan idol was taken up in every sub-division of the district. Likewise Madan Mohan Temple was set up in Dinhata, Tufanganj, Mathabhanga and Mekhliganj respective Sub-divisions.
      Though the temple of Madan Mohan was set up personally at the centre of Dinhata town primarily by the influential subjects of the locality, later it attained its optimum form guided by royal financial assistance. There are three standing statues of Brahma, Vishnu & Maheswar on top of the cornice in front of the temple. Inside the temple seated on wooden throne there are idols of Krishna, Balaram & Subhadra along with eight other idols all made out of amalgamation of 8 metals.

Kamteswari Temple (Gosani Debi)


       Maharaja Pran Narayan established the temple of GosaniDebi or KamteswariDebi at Dinhata in 1665 A.D. A fusion of Banga Charchala (four-corniced roof) and Mughal architecture can be noticed in this temple. The high wall all around the temple compound, four Minars (monumental pillar) in the four corners and the high arch at the entrance --- all portray similarity with Mughal architecture.

      The idol of Chhinnamossta in the form of BhagbatiDebi is enthroned on wooden throne inside the temple. Beside this Radha-Krishna, Gopal and Shalgram Shila are also daily worshipped over here. On the wall inside the temple there are beautifully carved structures of Lord Surya and Vishnu made out of touch-stone.
