Tarapith is also famous for Bamakhepa known as the `mad saint`, who is worshipped in the temple. He resided in the cremation grounds as a mendicant and practiced and perfected Yoga and the Tantric art under the guardianship of another famous saint known as the Kailashpathi Baba. Bamakhepa dedicated his entire life to the worship of mother Tara. His ashram is also located close to the temple.

The Tarapith Cremation ground is very integral to the Shakti Pith here. It is believed that Ma Tara herself resides in these grounds attracted to the bones and skeletons of the dead and drinks the blood of the animal sacrifices to mitigate her anger. Tantrik practitioners regularly flock to these grounds to perform the tantrik rites.
