Tarakeshewar Temple, the shrine dedicated to Taraknath (one of the forms of Lord Shiva), was assumed to be built in 1729 AD by Raja Bharamalla. A Shayambhu ling is the presiding deity.

There are many interesting legends behind the establishment of Tarakeshwar temple. One story goes with a person Vishnu Das and his brother came to Tarakeshwar town from Ayodhya. The locals looked suspiciously the people and to prove his innocence Vishnu Das hold a red hot iron in his hand. Later his brother unearthed a Shivalinga from a spot in the town. He got a night dream revealing that it was Lord Shiva and he was instructed to establish a temple at the spot.

The temple is a specimen of local Bengali style architecture. The temple has an 'atchala' building structure with a 'natmandir' (place for offering prayers) in front. The temple premises host shrines of Kali and Lakshmi-Narayan. The temple houses a sanctum and a verandah. The verandah has three open spires with railings.

Mondays are believed to be very auspicious days in this temple. Opening Hours: 6:00 am - 1.30 pm and 4:00 - 7:00 pm
