Cleveland’s Temple was in Bhagalpur

Augustus Cleveland (1755-84) was the Collector and Judge at Bhagalpur who managed to tame the wild Paharia, or hill people, who used to swoop down on the people of the plains from their hilltop fastnesses on top of the Rajmahal Hills. In 1780 he founded an irregular regiment from these men called the Bhagalpur Hill Rangers. After his early death in 1784, two memorials were erected to him in Bhagalpur, one in stone sent by the Court of Directors from England , the other, almost a shrine, built by the inhabitants of Bhagalpur.
