|Deity||Ghaghar Burhi Chandi Mata|
|Location||National Highway (Bypass), Asansol|
Ghaghar Burhi (ঘাঘর বুড়ি, घाघर बुढ़ी) is on the outskirts of Asansol city, by the side of the National Highway (Bypass) in West Bengal, India. It is a small shrine dedicated to Goddess Kali. Worship is held every Tuesday and Saturday. A country fair is held on 15 January every year. Animals are sacrificed as part of worship.
Legend has it that a marriage procession was unable to cross the rivulet in spate. They worshipped the deity, and the water subsided. They crossed the rivulet safely. (The rivulet now acts as sewage drainage of Asansol town. There are boulders and uneven stones, which gives rise to a strong current and eddy. This otherwise narrow and small rivulet is dangerous to cross.)
