Tripura Sundari Temple - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

One of the Shakti Peethas,
It reminds of Daksha Yagya and Self Immolation of Sati
And therafter remorseful Siva’s Tandava,
Unable to control himself,
So bereaved and grief-stricken,
Wandering and staggering
With the dead body of Sati
And the limbs falling
And thus fell it the right foot of Bhagavati
Where the temple has come up.

The idol of Tripureshwari was installed
After the king Dhanya Manikya Debbarma who ruled Tripura
In the closing years of the 15th century saw in a vision,
Commanding him to bring
And he brought in house in
The temple of Vishnu,
Finally aliging two sects closer,
Vaishanavism and Shaivism.

The adjacent Kalyan Sagar water body,
To Matabari, Udaipur,
Lies it beneath fringing it
Full of tortoises,
Adds to it differently,
Earning the name,
The Kurma-peetha.
