Nalhati is one among the 51 Shakti Peeths. It is believed that Parvati's throat (Nal) fell here, when Vishnu severed her body, with chakra, to stop Shiva from the Tandav nritya. That is why the name Nalateshwari is used as a synnonym for the Peeth.
It is about 15km to the north of Rampurhat. Those travelling along the Panagarh-Moregram state highway, will come across the town of Nalhati just after crossing the Brahmani river.
There are also some small hills in Nalhati on top of which there are sacred Hindu temples as well as Muslim mosques. On one of these hills there is a famous Neem tree, whose leaves, if you taste feels sweet.
There is a famous 'math', known as the 'Mahanirman Math', in the village of Jagdhari, which is on the banks of river Brahmani.
A relaxing way to enjoy the beauty of the place is to sit on the banks of Brahmani, or take a walk to the top of one of the hills and enjoy the beautiful paintings in the sky.
Nalhati has got a very busy railway station, and the main market (bazaar) is situated surrounding it.
