    Bishnupur or Vishnupur was the capital of the Mallabhum kingdom, once the most important Hindu dynasty in Bengal. The town has more than a dozen terracotta ( a hard, fired clay, brownish-red in color when unglazed, that is used for architectural ornaments and facings ) temples and the town is also known for its silk and the stylized Bankura horse.
