History

भीमेश्वरी देवी मंदिर, बेरी

It is a historical village, in existence from pre-Mahabharata period. The famous Bheemeshwari (भीमेश्वरी) Temple is situated on the outskirts of this village, connected to many folk tales relating to one of the Pandavas, Bheemsen. The temple attracts large crowds from many surrounding villages. Many traders or Banias of this village have now shifted to far flung places like Calcutta. They still own their traditional houses in the village and pay regular visits to the temple. Beri also used to host the largest cattle fair of India, which has now shifted to neighbouring Jehazgarh village.
