The Sheoraphuli Raj Debuttar Estate was a part of the Zamindari of the Sheoraphuli Rajparivar and now run as a family trust running the temples.
Sheoraphuli fell under the Zamindari of Raja Manohar Roy, a Raja in Bengal during the reign of Akbar the Great of the Mughal era . Raja Raj Chandra Roy, also known as "Jotey Raja" (the king with dreadlocks), Zamindar of Sheoraphuli built the temple of Ram-Sita (Serampore) in 1752 . He began residing in the 'Rajbari' of Sheoraphuli built by him, which also served as his temporary residence apart from his abode in Patuli. His third son Raja Harischandra left Patuli for Sheoraphuli, which served as their permanent dwelling from there on. After him the Zamindari was demarcated into the 'Barataraf' and the 'Chototaraf' which has been retained to the present.
Later on Zamindar Nirmal Chandra Ghosh (Barataraf) and his descendants of the "Raj Parivar" still continue to reside in the Rajbari. The 'Saraphuli Raj Debuttar' has been traditionally renowned for the policy of 'Self-Effacement'.
The " Sarvamangala Devi Temple" of the Raj Debuttar Estate is a center of attraction in and around the area most notably during the occasion of Durga Puja. Devotees and bhakts from various places gather for the 'Arati'. The Puja is also a special occasion for the gathering of the family members of the Rajparivar. The "Kumari Puja" during the 'Mahaashtami' is also a special and prominent phase during the Rajbari Durga Puja. The temple is also an abode for the "Radha Krisahna" murti.
The Rajbari Durga Puja will be completing its 280th year in 2012.
The 'Asthadhaatu' murti of Devi "Sarvamangala" is said to have been excavated from underneath the ground, after a vision appeared before Raja Manohar Roy in his dream. The temple and the Durga Puja has a rich traditional history and is looked after by the 'Raj Debuttar Trust'. The trust formed by the members of the 'Rajparivar' caters to needs of the temple renovations and welfare of its premises.
