Nalhati town is named after the Shakti peeth Nalhateshwari temple, which according to the mythologies is the situated where the “nala” i.e. throat of goddess Shakti had fallen. It is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas in India.

Tarapith is a small temple town near Rampurhat in Birbhum district of the Indian state of West Bengal, known for its Tantric temple and its adjoining cremation (Maha Smashan) grounds where sadhana (tantric rituals) are performed. The Tantric Hindu temple is dedicated to the goddess Tara, a fearsome Tantric aspect of the Devi, the chief temples of Shaktism. Tarapith derives its name from its association as the most important centre of Tara worship and her cult. Tarapith is also famous for Sadhak Bamakhepa, known as the avadhuta or “mad saint”, who worshipped in the temple and resided in the cremation grounds as a mendicant and practised and perfected yoga and the tantric arts under the tutelage of another famous saint, the Kailashpathi Baba. Bamakhepa dedicated his entire life to the worship of Tara Maa. His ashram is also located in bank of Dwaraka river and close to the Tara temple.

Although Bakreshwar, is primarily renowned for its Shiva temple and therapeutic hot springs, these attractions tend to overshadow its parallel significance as a place of power for goddess devotees. As a shakti pith, the Mahishamardini Mandir draws worshipers of the divine mother to this country town, named for its resident male god. At the heart of Bakreshwar, the spiritual traditions of Shiva and Shakti converge, reconciling the dichotomy of masculine and feminine divinity in one harmonious temple complex. Unlike the red vestments typical of Brahmins officiating at temples consecrated to Shakti, the preferred color of Bakreshwar’s dhoti (unstitched men’s garment) clad priesthood is white. Bakreshwar is the site of several geothermal hot springs, some of which are believed to have healing properties. Throughout its history, people suffering from a spectrum of afflictions have sought relief by coming here to bathe in these mineral-rich waters. Many of the smaller springs are bounded by concrete retaining walls, in a quasi-rectangular configuration resembling a stylized yoni, with descending steps on one open side permitting access to the water. The two largest stepwells are surrounded with a gated wall and function as the primary “public baths” of Bakreshwar. The unique geothermal activity not only effects the enclosed springs, but much of the water found in this area.

In Bolpur subdivision of Birbhum district Kankalitala is a temple town in the Indian state of West Bengal. It is one of the Shakti Peethas where the bone of goddess Parvati fell which is at present the Kankalitala town. The residing deity of the Kankalitala Temple is goddess Parvati. The mythology of Daksha yaga and Sati’s self immolation is the story of origin behind Shakti Peethas. Shakti Peethas are holy abode of Devi formed due to the falling of body parts of the corpse of Sati Devi, when Shiva carried it and wandered through. There are 51 Shakti Peeth linking to the 51 alphabets in Sanskrit. Each temple has shrines for Shakti and Kalabhairava. The Shakti of the temple is addressed as “Devgarbha” and the Bhairava as “Ruru”. It is believed that Sati Devi’s bones have fallen here.
