Bindachul a town near Mirzapur, to the north of Bengal, in Hindustan, where there is a temple dedicated to the sanguinary goddess Kali (q.v.). At this place religious ceremonies are constantly performed, and thousands of animals are offered in sacrifice. It is chiefly frequented by the Thugs (q.v.), or leagued murderers, who, before setting out on their cruel expeditions, visit the temple of the goddess, implore her aid, and, in the event of success, promise her a portion of the booty.
