The Temple is dedicated to Goddess Kali in the form Bhimakali and is a famous pilgrimage destination among Hindus. The temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peetha in the Indian sub-continent. A Shakti Peetha is the divine chair of the goddess and marks the place where body parts from Goddess Sati’s corpse fell. The presiding Bhimakali goddess has been portrayed here as maiden and as a woman. Until the early 19th century, Human sacrifices were made within the temple premises to please the presiding deity. The temple houses various weapons used during the reign of Bushahrs. Even today, animal sacrifices are performed as offering to Bhimakali.
