It is devoted to the Hindu god Shiva worshiped as Taraknath. The sanctuary is an atchala structure of Bengal sanctuary design with a 'natmandir' in front. Close by are the holy places of Kali and Lakshmi Narayan. Dudhpukur, a tank toward the north of the Shiva sanctuary is accepted to satisfy the supplications of those taking a dunk in it. Pioneers visit the sanctuary consistently, particularly on Mondays. Be that as it may, a large number of travelers visit Tarakeswar on the events of 'Shiatri' and 'Gajan', the previous occurring in Phalgun while the last goes on for five days finishing on the most recent day of Chaitra . The long stretch of Sravana is propitious for Shiva when festivities are hung on every Monday.
