Saw two terracotta temples on the road from Konnagar station to Ganga. There are some panels on the one on the left. The place is on Criper Road, Konnagar. This is the road heading towards Konnagar Station from Konnagar Ferry Ghat. Less than a kilometre from GT Road. Looked old but not very bad condition. If you want more details let me know. Your website is a very good effort on a very favourite subject. Carry on with the good work. ADHIP MITRA September 2011
