Kankaleshwari Shakti peeta- Kankalitala, Bolpur, Bhirbhum, West Bengal 
Dr A Pranesh


Kankalitala temple is situated about 9 kms. from Bolpur. It is located on Bolpur- Labhpur road, on the banks of river Kopai, in Birbhum district of west Bengal.

Sati devi’s waist is believed to have fallen in a pond adjacent to the temple. Hence the main temple has no idol but has a photograph of Maa Kankaleshwari. Hence all the devotees worship the pond

The temple is amidst agricultural fields and has a serene atmosphere.
