Shayam Chand Temple

Shayam Chand Temple is a highly revered shrine located at Shantipur in Nadia District of West Bengal. It is about 20 km from Krishnanagar. Shayam Chand Temple is built in traditional 'at-chala' (literally meaning eight spires) style. The at-chala is a superstructure duplicated by the char-chala, one above the other. The char-chala architecture has a sloped roof on all the four sides and the top is a pointed structure if the base is square and a ridge if rectangular. This temple with its exquisite architecture is a major attraction not only for the devotees, but also for tourists as well.

Topkhana Mosque and Jaleswar Temple are other local tourist interests.

Shayam Chand Temple can be easily approached from Krishnanagar by road. Shantipur Railway Station served by the Eastern Railways is the nearest railhead. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport is the closest airport.
