GOVINDA RAM MITTEE'S PAGODA, CALCUTTA.

This Pagoda, or Hindoo Temple, which is dedicated to Seeva, was built by Govinda Ram Mittee, a native merchant, residing in the neighbourhood of Calcutta, but never completely finished. It is a modern work, principally of brick, and in a mixed style of architecture. The Tank is a necessary appendage to buildings of this nature, ablution being a ceremony that very frequently occurs in the religious duties of an Hindoo.
