This Tarakeswar Siva Mandir although is an ancient one in the Hooghly region, it is maintained well. This shrine, as most of the mandirs in Bengal is simple and bereft of loftiness in construction and occupation. It consists of only two parts-the first portion is called porch and appears like Bengali hut, and the other is garbha griha enshrining the Sivalinga in the middle. It has a tank for the convenience of visiting devotees. As it is surrounded by houses on all sides, its eminence is some what less conspicuous, yet it is attracting the devotees throughout  the year. On Sivaratri festivals, thousands gather and with great religious fervor.

It lies near Serampore railway station and can be reached from Calcutta by buses or other four wheelers too.
