There is a Sati pith named Tarapith on banks of Dawarka river in Rampisham, Birbhum district of West Bengal.

The temple is dedicated to Goddess Tara a fearsome tantric aspects of Devi or Shakti.
Sage Vashistha practiced Sadhana to Tara devi, but was unsuccessful, then a devine voice instructed him to learn dhayana or meditation from a Saint in China or Tibet. The Saint train him and instructed him to do Sadhana using Dhyana through practice of Vamachara. It is associated with pancha-makara or pancha-tattva or five Ms. In literal terms they are Madya (wine), Mamsa (meat), Matsya (fish), Mudra (cereal), and Maithuna (sexual intercourse).
