nalateswari temple birbhum

Nalateswari Temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas, one of the 51 places where parts of Devi Sati’s body fell. This temple is very sacred and visited by devotees from all over the country. Since the throat or ‘nala’ of Sati is believed to have fallen here, the temple came to be called as the Maa Nalateswari Temple. It is believed that no matter how much water is poured down the throat of the goddess, it will never get overflowed or dried up.
