Tarapith temple is a small temple situated on the banks of the river Dwarka that flows through Birbhum, at a distance of 264 km from Kolkata. This ancient temple is considered exceptionally auspicious by the members of the Hindu community and is one of the 51 Shakti Peeths. It is considered to be a haven for the practitioners of Tantrism.
According to the legends, when Lord Shiva’s wife Goddess Sati committed suicide by jumping into the ritual fire, Shiva roamed the entire universe moaning her loss. It is believed that one eyeball of Sati fell right here in Tarapith. The village was earlier called Chandipur, but later its name was changed facing Tarapur or Tarapith because the Bengali word for eyeball is Tara. Thus, the temple is dedicated to Ma Tara, who is believed to be the second out of the ten goddesses of great wisdom. She is also called Kalika, Bhadra-Kali, and Mahakali. She is worshipped as the tantric depiction of Goddess Durga. The temple is a spiritual and an architectural wonder. If you come looking for peace and miracles, this is the place for you.
