Important place to visit

The most important place you should visit at least once in your lifetime. The calmness and the legacy of religiousness associated with this temple will take you back to the golden era of Sadhok Bamakhyapa.

Bakreswar Shakthi Peet.

Very nice place. Not a commercialised place. Good sanctity prevails here. Very much liked the place, different Kunds and the story of Ashtabakra. One must visit this place.
