Sindurmati Dighi in Panchagram union of Rajarhat upazila of the district is a place of pilgrimage for Hindus. It is said that a Hindu named Rajnarayan Chakraborty from Sinhala (Sri Lanka) dug a dighi in the hope of having children. It takes a long time to dig a huge tank. In the meantime, if he has two daughters, he will name them Sindur and Moti. But after digging the tank, it was seen that there was no water in it. On receiving the dream order, the king organized a puja in the middle of the excavated tank on the ninth day. But before the end of the puja, the water filled the tank and the two daughters of the king drowned. From then on, the name of this tank was Sindurmati. Spread over an area of more than 16 acres, the tank was renovated by the government in 1975, and at the bottom of it are many ancient coins and valuable statues, which are now preserved in the National Museum.
