PaglaKhali Mandir Naida 


One Winter afternoon I went to Paglakhali for the first time with my two friends on a bicycle. We had a rutin, we used to go to unknown places on bicycles every afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays. Just like that one winter evening we went and arrived at Paglakhali. A small Temple at the base of a banyan tree on the bank of the river was very pleasant to see and the place brought peace to my mind. Camly, we three friends were exploring the whole place. It was evening and there was no one around us except two locals.

The Paglakhali Temple:
