- The people of North Bengal are also a varied lot. The tea gardens brought in Tribals from Bengal and Bihar. The hill stations attracted people from neighboring Nepal, and the partition of 1947 brought in Hordes of Bengalis from Bangladesh.
- The Hills, the jungles and the serene beauty of undulating tea gardens spread to the horizon.

Jalpesh Mandir is a famous temple of North Bengal located near Jalpaiguri town. The 350 year old temple of Lord Shiva was constructed by the erstwhile King of Coochbehar, Shri Prananarayan. During the monsoon month (Hindu calendar month of Shravan), thousands of pilgrims flock to Jalpesh Mandir for puja chanting ‘Bholey Bom’. During this time large fair is organised around the temple complex.
Jalpesh Temple can be reached from Mainaguri. From Mainaguri bypass crossing, the temple is just 6 kms away. From Jalpaiguri town it is about 23 kms away. The nearest airport is Bagdogra about 75 kms away and the nearest rail station is Jalpaiguri road 25 kms.
The Jalpesh Temple is the main attraction here which is considered highly sacred by the Hindu disciples. The Teen Bigha Corridor near Haldibari area is also not very far from here and can be visited on the same day trip (35 kms from the temple).
Jarda river near the Jalpesh Temple is a small stream without much significance. Recently a depression occurred on part of the Jarda riverbed which created a small waterfall. This has now become another tourist attraction in the area.
