This king had brought his family deity in the form of a small gold Idol encased in a locket which he always wore around his upper arm. For many years the idol remained encased but in the 96th generation of sen dynasty , Raja Bhupendra Sen one day had an unusual experience while hunting in the dense forest of Juggar , near by the present temple, where he had a vision of his holy family deity goddess :”Maa Tara” along with her Dwarpal Bhairav and Hanuman Ji , who expressed her keen desire to be unveiled before the people.
