Rashmancha :  Rasmancha was built in 1600AD by Bir Hambir. At that time the Rasa festival was used to celebrate there. This is probably the only Indian structure which contains two distinct art combined together. The center is built like a pyramid and the surrounding corridors are built in the shape of lotus bud. It is a very nicely built structure whose plinth is made with stones and the superstructure is built in burnt bricks. This rasa mancha is a very nice square shaped structure. Rasmancha is believed to be the oldest pyramidal tower shaped, brick temple.  This temple is surrounded by turrets, in the shape of huts which was an idea of King Bir Himbira in 17th century. The Rasmancha was built in a way to accommodate the deities that people brought during the festivals. This structure is showcased nowadays by illuminating  at night.

JoreBangla Temple : The Jorbangla temple was built in 1655 AD by King Raghunath Singha dev II. The roof and walls of the temple represent the  classical Chala style. Some of the finest works of terracotta are found on the walls of this temple. Rooms and walls are set with a number of terracotta panels. Some of the carved designs of the Royal lifestyles, stories depicting the epics, historical scenes from the battles, etc are   found  on the walls and on the roof of the temple.

Radha Shyam Temple : The Radhashyam temple in Bishnupur is known for the terracotta style of architecture. This temple was built during the reign of King Chaitanya Singha during the mid of 1750s. The temple structure has a curved roof with a single tower that crowns the square structure of the building. Lord Krishna is the deity that is revered in this temple.

Dal Madol : The cannon named as Dal Madol was built by the Malla kings to fight the Maratha invasion.  This Cannon is near Chinomasta temple and is significant for the people of Bishnupur as well as Bengal. The cannon measures about 3.8 m in length and has a barrel of 28.5 cms.  It was built in the year 1742 under Raja Gopal Singh to protect Bishnupur  from Marathas. The Cannon is built with iron materials and doesn’t have any rust, though it is exposed to rain and sun since 18th century.

Stone Gateways: Short distances away from the Mrinmoyee Temple are the two stone gateways. The larger of the two gateways is known as the Pathar Darwaja (Stone Door) as it is built of laterite stone. This gate once served as the northern entrance of the Royal residence and was built in the second half of the 17th century by Maharaja Bir Singha. The double storied gate accommodated troops and narrow slits allowed the archers and the gunmen to fire their shots. A few yards away is a small stone gateway, which was built in the same period. Although much smaller in magnitude the small but elegant structure still reminds one of the glorious days of Bishnupur.
