Five Days Backpacking in Purulia

Description

Jaina Bhagavati-Sutra of circa 5th century A.D. mentions that Purulia was one of the 16 Mahajanapadas and was a part of the country known as Vajra-bhumi in ancient times. However, little is known about Purulia before the East-India Company obtained the 'Diwani' of Bengal, Bihar, Orissa in 1765. Purulia is the westernmost district of West Bengal with all-India significance because of its tropical location, its shape as well as its function as a funnel. It funnels not only the tropical monsoon current from the Bay to the subtropical parts of north-west India, but also acts as a gateway between the developed industrial belts of West Bengal and the hinterlands in Orissa, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttarpradesh. For its convenient location, this place has acquired an important place in the tourist map in India.
