Places to visit

  • Shri Pitambara Peeth (Bagalamukhi) : Shri Pitambara Peeth is a well-known Shakti Peetha in Bagalamukhi, located in Kuchaikote, 15 kilometers from Gopalganj. Bagalamukhi is one of the ten mahavidyas in Hinduism (great wisdoms). Bagalamukhi Devi uses a bludgeon to smash the devotee's preconceptions and delusions. The name directly translates to "crane-faced." The name "Bagla" is a corruption of the Sanskrit root "Valga." Her skin is golden, and she wears yellow clothing. She sits on a golden throne in the center of a nectar-filled ocean teeming with yellow lotuses. Her hat is adorned with a crescent moon. In several writings, the goddess is referred to as the "Dwi-Bhuja" (two-handed) and the "Chaturbhuja." (Four-handed). The Dwi-Bhuja depiction is more familiar and is known as the "soumya," or softer variety. She is seen clutching a club in her right hand, with which she hits the demon while tearing his tongue out with her left. This artwork is sometimes depicted as an explanation of "sthambhana," the ability to stun or paralyze one's opponent into silence. This is one of the reasons Bagalamukhi's devotees worship her.
