It was a nice trip by car from Kolkata to Tarakeshwar.The distance is about 70 KM.We reached the holy place in two hours. One can reach the point by bus or by train. There is also a railway station called Tarakeshwar. The main attraction of this tourist’s spot is Lord Shiba and the beautiful temple. Also there is pond or tank by name Dhud Pookur attached to the temple. One has to take bath in the pond and then proceed to the temple for worshipping the lingam, it’s one of the Jyotirlingams of lord shiba. But it’s not obligatory to take a bath in the pond.We could finish our puja in the morning itself. There are plenty of hotels and restaurants in and around the place for food and stay.There is not much rush this part of the year.But it will be heavily crowded during summer and rainy season on special puja occasions. We returned to Kolkata same day evening.

Taraknath Temple, a famous hindu temple located in Tarakeswar town in Hooghly district of West Bengal, India, is enshrining Shayambhu linga of Lord Shiva and is also claimed to be one of the Jyothirlinga shrines of Lord Shiva. It is believed to be constructed in an ‘Atchala’ structure in the style of Bengal temple architecture with a ‘natmandir’ in front of it featuring four roofs above the sanctum and extended galleries for the congregation of the devotees. It was said to be built in 1729 AD by Raja Bharamalla. A pond by name ‘Dudhpukur’, is located in the north side of the temple. is It is believed that those taking bath in it are getting their prayers fulfilled. I visited the temple on 17th February, 2018.

The spiritual ambience is the main attraction here. People from all walks of life visit this place to offer their prayers for fulfilment of their wishes.. The mandir premises need more cleanliness although the work on this front is going on in full swing.

The highly benevolent Lord , he is known to grant wishes . The sanctum is totally dark , but his presence is felt . Highly crowded but it's worth all the pain and wait . Can be covered when going from Kolkata to jairambati .
