The Bhadrakali Temple is situated on the Jhansa Road in the town of Thanesar in the district of Kurukshetra. Bhadrakali is a form of Shakti. This is considered to be one of the 51 Shakti ‘pithas’ of India. It is believed that an anklet of Sati fell in the well. The mythical incident of Sati is being recalled here with a marble ankle.
It is also believed that Pandavas along with Lord Krishna worshipped Ma Durga and after the victory in Mahabharata battle, they came here again to worship Mother Goddesses. They also offered their horses in her service. Since that day, the devotees offer terracotta and metal horses to the deity after their wishes are fulfilled. It is also believed that ‘mundan’ (hair removing) ceremony of Shri Krishna and Balaram was performed in this temple.
