India | Uttar Pradesh | Unnao


Bangarmau is a village on the left bank of the Kalyani, about 49 km north-west of Unnao and 22 km north-west of Safipur on the Unnao- Hardoi road. Buddhist literature has references to the Buddha staying for a while and preaching the gospel. Close to Bangarmau was ancient town Newal. This ancient town is associated with references to 'alavi' in the Buddhist records and 'Navadevakula' in Hieun Tsang's travel accounts. A rich variety of archaeological items and earthen black polished wares discovered declare the antiquity of this region. The interesting objects found here include a significant terracotta piece representing Ardhanarishwari, Manshila Mandir, Davendihar, and Mahadev Phulwari. The Budhawa Mangal fair, Baboo Mian ka Mela, and the fair of Shitla Devi are held here annually.
