On the south-east side of Khirpai town, there is a lake; ruins can be found in the south east corner of this lake. Once, it was the trade-house of the European merchants. French, Hollander, Portuguese and British stepped here for trade, as before 1660 and by that time they thronged here for purchasing cotton and silk, which are of exclusive status. In 1763, French built a workshop in this place. Khirpai is also famous for its ‘Babarsha’, a special type of sweetmeat, which is not available elsewhere.
