THE TEMPLES IN 24 PARGANAS

Majilpur also became the center of Sakti worship and the Kalibari of Majilpur was at one time as famous as the Kalighattemple. The Kalipitha of Majilpur became a center for the sadhana of a number of Tantrics.
It is interesting to note that a number of villages like Chakratirtha, Maida, Rajpur, Boral, Kalighat, Chitpur all on the bank of the Adi-Ganga river became great places for Sakti worship. Chakratirtha is now a decadent village but at one time was the seat of trade, commerce and prosperity. Kabikankan Mukunda Ram in his Chandi- Kavya has made a mention of Chakratirtha village as a famous river point.

The pilgrims would disembark here, visit the temple of Tripura Sundari and Bhairab Ambulinga Siva, have a  bath at the sacred tanks and continue their river journey. Many black-stone images of goddesses have been found at this village. Chakratirtha still has been found at this village. Chakratirtha still has a mela in the month of Chaitra when thousands of pilgrims have their bath at Nanda's Pukhur(tank) held to be sacred. After the mela the village again shrinks into oblivion.
