Being a freelance photographer always has some advantages. Just like the very way I reached Bandel outside of West Bengal in February. The first heritage place that we visited was the Imambara, Hooghly, India. It is basically a Shia Muslim congregation hall and mosque in Hooghly, West Bengal, India. The construction of the building was started by Muhammad Mohsin in 1841 and completed in 1861. The building is a two storied structure, with a tall clock tower over the entrance gate. But, most of it is in ruins now and the clock is totally non functional and can only be seen from behind the bars. I saw some workers busy cleaning and reshaping some old heavy wooden planks. It attracted my curiosity and after having a little conversation with them I got to know that they are trying to revive some of the lost glory to this heritage place. It is being restored and so the woods re being cleaned and reshaped.
