History

Dasarath Basu arrived in the 11th century in Bengal. One of his descendants, Raghunandan Basu, was reconfirmed the Zamindari / Jagir of Ulpur / Shahpur  by the Moghuls in the 16th century where his descendants settled.
The Basu Roy Chowdhury of Ulpur family lost their ancestral home in East Bengal (now Bangladesh) when India was divided in 1947.

  Mainly after 1947 the five branches of the family spread all over the globe. However, one descendant stayed in Bangladesh and his sons are taking an active part in the public live of the region.

The estates of the different family members can still be found in Ulpur and are now used by the villagers as their homes. The smaller temples and ponds are in a devastating condition, but the main Khali temple is still in use and has been recently renovated.

The village was once the center of the district/pargana with markets and a very active cultural life.
