- 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.

This famous temple of Dooars area of North Bengal is one of the oldest temples of the region. The temple has religious as well as historic significance. The main temple was built during the time of the Gupta rulers of Bengal around 320 AD to 600 AD. The temple is dedicated to Jatileswar or lord Shiva. The temple is under the protection of Archaeological Survey of India.
The temple is located about 10 kms from Maynaguri town of Jalpaiguri district. It is situated on the western side of river Jaldhaka close to the highway connecting Maynaguri with Dhupguri. The location of the Temple is about halfway between the two towns. About 8 kms after Maynaguri on National Highway 31, you will reach Husludanga crossing. Leave the National Highway and take the right hand road to Husludanga which is a small village. From here a small village road to your right will take you to the Jatileswar Temple.
In spite of its historical significance, the Jatileswar temple is not visited by lots of tourists. As a result the temple compound is not commercialised. There is no entry fee or fixed dakshina that you have to pay. The temple compound is very large and full of trees. There are two water bodies within the temple complex and the main Shiva temple is located on the middle of a large pond.
There is no accommodation in the nearby area. The nearby accommodation is in Gorumara surrounding area which is about half an hours’ drive. You can also travel here from Jalpaiguri town which is about 25 kms away.
