It is believed after the discovery of ruins of some Buddhist Temples/Stupa (mond) in Shibpota, Bhogpota and Mangalpota , that the region was a bastion of ancient Buddhist religion. The area between River Jamuna and River Chalundia was known as Kushdwip which was under the reign of one Raghab Siddhantabagis, a brahmin feudal lord. In 1580-83, the Mughals annexed his domain and he was awarded title Choudhury by Mughals. After indepence in 1947, a major section of Hindu community, particularly of Matua sect , migrated to Bengal and settled at Gaighata PS area. That place was renamed as Thakurnagar after Shri Harichand Thakur , who formed the Matua sect of Hinduism. Dinabandhu Mitra , the writer of Neeldarpan is associated with Gaighata. His anchestral house was located at village Gaipur under Gaighat though he born at Chauberia under Goplnagar PS. Gaighata is also associated with Binoy Chakraborty, Sahitya Academy Award winner of 2005, who settled at village Shimulpur under Gaighata PS after independence.
