Chotanagpur plateau, especially Purulia was a fertile land of the Lepers. It is a matter of sadness that the history of leprosy and its interaction with human being is one of suffering and misunderstanding. This disease is not hereditary or epidemic.Rev. Uffmann, a German missionary, cared for it. He established Leper asylum in Purulia. After that thousands of people cured from here and freed from the curse. This is a natural Asylum and still functioning from 1883.
