The district of Birbhum is  blessed with several places of worship for men of all faiths. Among them, Bakreswar occupies a pre-eminent place for several reasons, like the Tantriks attained Siddhi by the grace of these gods; they attracted pilgrims throughout the year; their hot water springs cured many physical maladies etc. On account of these plus points, many legends fantastic were woven round and made it an indispensable centre of pilgrimage for orthodox Hindus. Among the exciting tales, Brahma's getting rid of the sin of marrying His own daughter after praying to this Lord; Gouri's marrying Siva after propitating the presiding deity of this Bakreswar; restoring of the vanished light of the Sun god with the mercy of this Lord; relieving of Bhairav's mental anguish after worship the Lord here etc. etc. etc. take precedence over others. The river Bakreswar popularly called Papahar river too is very famous and occupied a high place in the Puranas for possessing miraculous powers, like ridding the bathers of their sins and ailments. The hot water springs of high medicinal value too raised its banner higher and turned it out into a famous pilgrim cum tourist centre with unlimited potentialities. So, there is nothing wrong in the belief current - "At other places, the deities live in an inhabited village, but at Bakreswar men live for the deities". So it was called an idyllic Devagram. The annual mela of Bakreswar held during Sivaratri draws lakhs of devotees and turn this into Bhuloka Kailas with all kinds of devotional activities.

The temple's architectural design too is quite enticing and enchants the devotees.

It lies about 10 km off Dubrajpur railway station on the Ondal - Sainthia section of the Eastern Railway, and from there four wheelers take the intending devotees to the temple.
