Amar Shahid Bandhu Singh was a guerrilla who fought against the British Raj in India.

Bandhu Singh was born on 1 May 1833 in a Zamindar family of Babu Shiv Prasad Singh of Dumari Riyasat. He had five brothers named Dal Hamman Singh, Tejai Singh, Fateh Singh, Jheenak Singh and Karia Singh. He was a devotee of Tarkulaha Devi. He was finally arrested by the British and hanged publicly at Ali Nagar Chauraha in Gorakhpur on 12 August 1857. There is a month-long Mela (funfair) every year starting from Chaitra Ramnavami at the Tarkulaha Devi Temple. People from far-flung locations visit ‘Tarkulaha Mela’ to shop for their annual requirements of Garam Masala (Indian Spices) and to enjoy the traditional ‘Nautanki’ (drama), Nag Kanya shows and small circuses. Also, Tarkulaha Devi Temple was Shaheed Bandhu Singh's favourite place.
