Bhadrakali Temple near Bhopalpatnam in Bijapur, Chhattisgarh

Bhadrakali Temple is located at Bhadrakali Village near Bhopalpatnam in Bijapur, Chhattisgarh attracts thousands of devotees from the states of Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Telangana. The temple is located around 20 km from Bhopal Patnam.

The shrine, dedicated to Goddess Kali, is on the confluence of the Indravati and Godavari River.
It is believed that a Kakatiya King who was a worshipper of Goddess Kali consecrated the first murti here. The spot where the temple now stands was earlier a cave. The shrine was then forgotten for a long period as it was inside dense forest.

The temple was later rediscovered and pujas and rituals began once again during the 19th century. A new murti of Goddess Kali was established here.

A huge fair and festival is organized during Vasant Panchami (January or February) here. Once in three years Agnikund is organized here – people walk through a bed of red-hot coal.
