The Naulakha Mandir is a temple dedicated to Radha-Krishna. The amount spent in construction of the temple was about Rupees Nine lakhs (9 lakhs). Hence it became known as Naulakha Temple. This entire amount was donated by the Rani Charushila who belonged to Pathuria Ghat King’s family, Kolkata. It is said that at the early age she lost her husband Akshay Ghosh and son Jatindra Ghosh. Grieved by the deaths, she left her home and met the saint Balananda Brahmachari who asked her to construct this temple.

Balanand Brahmachari used to meditate at Tapoban, 8 km from the city. Tapoban is an equally fascinating place famous for its hill top temples and caves.
