Bhramari Shaktipeeth Devi Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Goddess Sati located in Bodaganj Village in Jalpaiguri District in West Bengal, India. Bhramari Shaktipeeth Temple is located on the banks of the Tista River, this is one of the reasons why it is also known as Tristrota Shakti Peeth. The Temple is among 51 Shaktipeeth Temples.

Additionally, Devi Bhramri is one of the manifestations of the Goddess of Strength and Power, Devi Adi Shakti. Since this Shakti Peeth was formed centuries ago, it is still unknown when exactly the temple was built. It is believed that the Mata Bhramri Devi Temple was formed by the Vama Pada, or when Shakti’s left leg, fell here.

Story Behind Bhramari Shaktipeeth

The goddess of Dakshayani, Sati, Parvati, or Durga—Hinduism’s most important woman and most powerful deity—is called Shakti. Durga Devi, Mahakali, and Gowri are the three main manifestations of Shakti, the power goddess. She is Adi Shakti’s avatar.

Sati was the Prajapati Daksha’s daughter, and she married Lord Shiva despite Her father’s wishes. Prajapati Daksha once put together a massive yagya, but he didn’t call his daughter and son-in-law. Sati was very saddened by Her father’s actions. When she got there, her father ignored the Sati and insulted her. She could not bear the insult of his husband (Lord Shiva) and she jumped into the fire of Yagya and committed suicide. She passed away, but her body didn’t burn. Lord Shiva had taken His Virabhadra Rupa out of rage. Daksha’s head was cut off by him, but in the end, He forgave him by bringing him back to life.

Lord Shiva, devastated, had taken Sati’s body and wandered the universe. Finally, Lord Vishnu used His Chakra to break Sati’s body into pieces. Each body part transformed into Shakti Pitha. The temple had emerged where the body part had fallen to the ground. In order to safeguard the Shakti Pitha, Lord Shiva created 51 Bhairava for each one.

The Purana says that Arun Asura conquered the Heavens (swarglok) and drove all Gods out of their opulent homes. The repulsive Asura also attempted to conquer the Gods’ wives. The Goddess then prayed to Goddess Parmeshwari, who then transformed into a large bee and attacked the demon with a swarm of bees. The honey bees destroyed the chest of Asura and killed him. As a saviour and protector of humanity, the divine mother is also referred to as Bhramari Devi or Bumblebee from that point on.

It is believed that the Vama Pada or the left leg of Sati or Shakti fell at this place to form the Mata Bhramri Devi Temple.

History of Bhramari Shaktipeeth
