Satputia Sahasralinga Mandir, Jhargram

 

Located in Satputia village of Jhargram district (WB), the Sahasralinga Mandir was built by Nayagram’s king Chandraketu and is over 500 years old. 

It is heard the infamous Kalapahar tried to uproot the Shiva Linga by tying it with elephants and pulling it. It resulted in the cracking of the floor upon which the linga is established, but the Linga wasn’t uprooted. A variation of this tale says that Kalapahar picked up the Linga and slammed it on the ground but failed to destroy it.
