Terra cotta in Eastern India
Museums in India have numerous examples of the art work in terra cotta created by Indian artists through the ages. For example, the museum of CAST in Calcutta- located in Behala - display an excellent collection of terra cotta articles and statuettes- many from the excavated site of Chandraketugarh.

We find terra cotta designs in Muslim architecture in Baharampur - famous Adina mosque included - please view the few photos I have posted in

The most artistic work in terra cotta in undivided Bengal - now West Bengal, Bangladesh - was executed between 17th and 19th centuries in form of wall reliefs or panels in temples. Constructing tone temples in Bengal would have been costly. Terra cotta work , therefore, flourished and we find excellent art work in terra cotta in the districts of West Bengal and Bangladesh .
