History:-Sugandha Shakti peeth is a temple dedicated to Goddess Sunanda. It is located in the village of Shikarpur, 10 miles north of Barisal, in Bangladesh. Sugandha Shakti Peeth is one of the 51 Shakti Peethas.
It is said that the nose of Maa Sati fell here. The idol of Maa Sati is called as ‘Sunanda’ and lord Shiva is worshipped as ‘Traimbak’. The Bhairav temple is in Ponabalia, located 5 miles south of Jhalkati rail station. Ponabalia is under the village Shamrail situated on the bank of the river Sunanda.
The whole complex of the Sugandha shakti peeth is made of stone, with images and statues of gods engraved on them. The sculptures presents are mesmerizing. Shine of the marble the temple is constructed of and its reflection on the water of the river is surely one thing that people do not want to miss out here.
It is an important incident in Shaivism resulting in the emergence of Shree Parvati in the place of Sati Devi and making Shiva a grihastashrami (house holder) leading to the origin of Ganapathy and Subrahmanya. Shakti Peethas are shrines or divine places of the Mother Goddess.
