Brick-built deul at Bhandirban near Suri, Birbhum Dist. in Bengal Page25

He was roundly taken to task and ordered to do penance for his unholy desires. He therefore undertook apilgrimage to Bakreswar, bathed in this stream, adored Siva and was purged of his crime. Setganga is called after a Raja named Set of Mangalkot in the Burdwan district, who attracted Siva's notice by the fervor of his devotion at this shrine, and being desired by the deity to name a wish, prayed that this spring might bear his name, a favor which was graciously accorded. This spring is enclosed in by far the largest basin. It is solidly constructed and was probably excavated by the person after whom it is called.

In connection with the Sanbhagya Kundu, the legend tells how Gauri, the daughter of Himalaya, being consumed with a burning passion for Siva, in hopes of propitiating whom she came to Bakreswar, bathed in this stream and adored the object of her love. The god heard her prayer and promised to espouse her, an undertaking that he subsequently carried out. Of the Surjya Kundu it is related that once upon a time the sage Narada, in the course of his travels, arrived at the foot of Mount Vindhyas and there sang the praises of the rival hill of Sumeru.
