Bakreshwar is a renowned pilgrimage spot situated in Birbhum, India. It belongs to the esteemed 51 Sakthi Peethas that are found across the country. The Bakreswar Temple here was constructed for worshiping Lord Bakranath (Shiva) and Goddess Kali since it marks the site where Sathi Devi’s forehead and brows fell down from Heaven. Numerous other shrines devoted to Shiva encircle this majestic temple while there is also a holy tank as well as sacred tree nearby which makes it even more special.

Bakreswar is renowned for its eight thermal springs, with Agnikund being the hottest of them all at an astonishing 93.33° C! It’s said that these waters possess remedial properties, and after descending into a tributary joining the Pamphra river they are then celebrated every year on Shiva-Ratri day.

In order to gain Shakti as his daughter in the form of Sati, Lord Brahma performed a yajna with the hope of pleasing Shiva and Shakti. The great Goddess was formed from their union and helped Brahma in creating the universe; yet ultimately she was returned to her husband Shiva. Daksha later conducted multiple ceremonies, hoping for another opportunity at gaining this divine energy- all while being unaware that it would be through his own daughter’s marriage to Shiva himself! Despite his disapproval however, Sati desired to visit her father; so after some persuasion by his wife, Shiva agreed – completely oblivious of what awaited them both upon arrival. Daksha’s dishonor of Shiva was too much for Sati to bear, prompting her to take the ultimate sacrifice and immolate herself. In his fury, Shiva took on the form of Veerabhadra and destroyed Daksha’s yagna. Mourning her death, he wandered Aryavartha in despair until his rage manifested as a violent dance known as Tandava. Lord Vishu, with the aim of stopping the Tandav, used his Sudarshana Chakra, which cut through the Sati’s corpse. The parts of Sati body fell at varroas spots all through the Indian and neighboring country and these Sacred sites came to be called Shakti Peethas .
