Aparna Shaktipeeth Bhowanipur, Bangladesh|Karota Shaktipeeth|Top Bangladesh Shaktipeeth

Aparna Shaktipeeth, Bangladesh is  one of the 51 Shaktipeethas and a sacred pilgrimage site for the followers of Hinduism. The presiding deity of this Shaktipeeth is Maa Aparna and the Bhairava is Baba Bamesh/Bamon.

The Aparna Shaktipeeth is located on the bank of the river Karatoya at Sherpur Upazilla of Bogura District in the Rajshahi Division of Bangladesh. This temple is about 28 kilometres from the town of Sherpur.

There is a difference in opinion in regards to the Devi’s parts that fell here. Some point out that Devi’s left anklet (ornament) fell here, others point out that the ribs of left chest or the right eye or the bedding of Maa Sati had fallen here.

A major portion of the Karota Shaktipeeth is in ruins and immediate effort is needed to protect this heritage, built by the Maharani Bhawani of Natore.

Story of Aparna Shaktipeeth Bangladesh

A legend says that once a conch-bangles dealer was passing by a pond in a jungle near the temple of Ma Bhabani. At that time, a little girl with a tip of vermilion on her forehead came to him and told him that she was the daughter of Natore’s palace. She bought a pair of conch-bangles from the dealer and requested him to collect the price of that bangles from the Queen of Natore kept at a specified place of the palace. 

Hearing all this from the dealer, the Queen rushed to the spot with him and her men. On the earnest prayer of the conch-dealer, Ma Bhabani raised from that pond showing Her two wrists with the conch-bangles worn. At this incident, this holy “Shakha-Pukur” (conch-bangles pond) became famous and the devotees take their sacred bath in this pond when they come here.

We had booked the Bangladesh Shaktipeeth tour through Kolkata Car Rental and had a wonderful and safe journey all throughout Bangladesh. People were very cooperative, helpful and our guide Mr. Sandeep was always there to help us. Comfortable vehicle and journey. Driver Raibul was very helpful and cooperative. A five star for the services of Kolkata car Rental. Would definitely recommend them or the Bangladesh Shaktipeeth Tour.

Mahendra Lal, NCR Delhi

Shaktipeeth Tour of West Bengal, Jharkhand and Odisha

We had hired a Tata Hexa in the second week of January and were lucky to be the first passengers to hire the vehicle. A Brand new vehicle. Not much to say. We did a trip to Babadham and the West Bengal Shaktipeeth and then to Puri. Driver Dhruv was extremely cordial and polite. A five star experience.
