Famous as Ugrasthan both in legends and history, this Sakti-Peeth has a long story woven with several anecdotes connected with three archamurtis - Tara, Eakjata and Neel Saraswati. Its location in Mithila region ruled over by king Janaka has another plus point for its religious importance. To crown as it were, it is one the Sakti-Peethas, where Mother Sati's eyes fell when Lord Siva whirled in a frenzied mood during Tandava nritya with the corpse of Sati on his shoulders. In Tantric lore, this Sakti-Peeth occupies a pre-emeninet place. On account of the installation of three powerful mortis, its fame spread far and wide and has been luring a steady influx of yatris throughout the year. The number of beneficiaries who were lifted by those mortis are a legion and among them Brahmarishi Vasista finds a mention The three archamurtis worshipped are independent, but united since they are installed in one place. They are in Kumari forms The Tantric literature mentions the existence of many more murti's along with a large tank here, but all went of existence due to ravages of nature.

In the beginning as the word goes all these powerful deites were found under a tree and worship was offered to them with great devotional zeal. A temple was built by Maharani Padmavathi Devi of Dharbhanga when her spouse was cured from leprosy by tile blessings of this Devi.
