  TAMLUK - BAGRABHIMA SHRINE

This famous temple was built by the Kaibartta Rajas of Bengal, who ruled from Tamluk called Tamralipta in the past.  Though the whole city and the royal place, the biggest of its kind, stretched over an area of 12 kilometers went underground due to fury of the river, the Bhargabhima temple located on the bank of Rupriarayan river is retaining its glory in parts only. The Goddess Bhargabhima-represents Tara, a manifestation Mother Sakti. And the temple built on the site of a Buddhist Vihara is quite imposing with three distinct parts, like Baradelu inner sanctuary, called the jagamohan the audience hall and Nat mandir - dancing hall. It has a shurdy prakara with mahadwara sarmounted by a tower.

The Mother's idol is made of stone and it is Chaturbhuja, a holding a pointed spearin the upper right hand, a sword in the lower one, a human skull in the left upper hand and the head of a demon in the lower left. In addition, this august presiding diety, there are two images of Siva and Mahishasura mardini on the same dais. This temple's architectural style bears striking resemblance to Orissan temple like Jagannath at Puri.
