Khargeswar Temple is one of the oldest temples built in Kharagpur and the name of the place originates from this temple. Khargeswar was established 400 years back by King Kharag Singh. As it is mentioned in Mahabharata, this place was ruled by the Demon King Hiramba. It is a place of mythological significance as Pancha Pandavas spent a few years of their exile here. Bheem deeply loved Hirimba (sister of Hiramba) this made Hiramba angry and because of which he had clashed with Bheem and he was killed by Bheem at the same place where Khargeswar Temple is located. The ideal worship is of lord Shiva. It is very close to the Kharagpur railway station it makes it easy for people to be here. Enjoy the architecture and the experience of being in the here.
