Jnanankura (Rajsahi, 1 Peepulpatty Lane, 1872-1875)
Jnanankura o Pratibimba (Calcutta, 55 College Street, 1875-1876)

This monthly periodical was begun from Rajsahi - Boalia and then transferred to Calcutta. Articles on historical events, natural sciences and philosophy of religion were published here along with poetry and fiction. Essays on the origin and evolution of the earth, the solar system and the human species appeared on the pages of this periodical. Jnanankura, like many other of the time, was acclaimed as a major contributor in the development of the scientific disciplines in Bengal. After its third year, Pratibimba, a contemporary monthly on literature edited by Ramsarbaswa Bidyabhusan, merged with it and it was renamed, Jnanankur o Pratibimba.

Printed by Ramnrisingha Bandyopadhyay, Nutan Bharat Jantra.

Jnanankura o Pratibimba was a continuation of the Jnankura, published only for a year and printed by Gopalcandra De, Nutan Sanskrita Jantra.
