The puja at Shovabazar Rajbari, is among the oldest Pujas in the city, organised by Raja Nabakrishna Deb of the Sobhabazar of Calcutta in honor of Lord Clive in the year 1757. The puja was organized because Clive wished to pay thanks for his victory in the Battle of Plassey. He was unable to do so in a Church because the only church in Calcutta at that time was destroyed by Siraj-ud-Daulah.
