Nalhateshwari Temple Overview

Ranked 4 of 6 sightseeing in Tarapith

Nalhateshwari Temple is another pilgrim spot offered by Tarapith, which is located in its vicinity at Nalhati.

The name of the place Nalhati is related to the Daksha Yaga and the subsequent sacrifice of life of Goddess Sati. Lord Shiva, when learnt about the incident, started Thandava Nrutya in anger, to destroy the Universe.  Lord Vishnu, to prevent the destruction of universe, sliced the body of Goddess Sati to 51 pieces using his Chakra-ayudha and placed them at different parts in earth and erected temples at these places. The place where the throat of Goddess Sati was placed came to be called as ‘Nalhati’ (Nala – throat).

Nalhateshwari Temple, dedicated to Goddess Kali, is a major Sakthi Pitha visited by pilgrims throughout the year.

A Shakthi Peeth.

Temple closes at 8 pm. We came back again in the morning. Had Darshan. Immediate Darshan. No queue. Clean and neat place. You may offer donations of Rs. 21 and above here.Flowers and incense are available just opposite the Mandir.This is also a shakthi peet.
