Kapilamuni (कपिलमुनि), propounder of the Sāṃkhya (साम्ख्य) philosophy is enshrined in the Kapil muni Temple at Gangasagar in West Bengal. Along side the central image of the silent sage are images of the sacred river Gangā and Bhagīrath who by means of severe austerities caused the heavenly river to descend upon earth.
