Bargabhima TempleBelieved to be more than a thousand years old, it was sculpted by Lord Viswakarma. The temple holds an old icon of the Goddess ‘Tara’, another face of Goddess Kali. According to mythology, Devi Bargabhima was creator of Tamralipta, once a great port of ancient India. This temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas. Puranas say that the small finger of left feet of Parvati fell here when Lord Vishnu cut her sacred body into several pieces to make Lord Shiva quiet.
