Deoghar : The abode of Gods in Jharkhand


Baidyanath Temple

Located in Santhal Parganas of Jharkhand, Deoghar  is known all over the country as the 'Baidyanath Dham.' The Baidhyanath Temple in Deoghar  preserves one of the 12 jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva and is also considered as one of the 51 sacred Shakti Peethas. It is the only location in India where the Shakti Peeth and the Jyotirlinga are together. Tourists from all over the world come to enjoy the spiritual bliss of Deoghar , its epiphanic aura and the rustic beauty of its lush green forests. In a nutshell, its undulating landscape, small hills, water courses and positive aura makes it the abode of Hindu Gods and Goddesses.

It is believed that the last Gupta ruler, Adityasena Gupta had ruled over this territory in the 8th century AD. A pond, famously called as 'Mansarovar' was created by Emperor Akbar's brother in law, Raja Man Singh, during the Mughal Period. The historic saga and brilliance of Deoghar , the spot where religion and myth coincide, is never ending. Even now, during the Hindu calender month of Shraavana (July-August), the devotees visit Deoghar  from Sultanganj (In Bihar) to make their infeasible dreams come true.

Following are the main attractions of Deoghar

Baidyanath Temple : It is considered to be one of the most sacred temples for worshipping Lord Shiva.  Presumably, it dates to 1596. The temple complex includes the revered Baidyanath Temple along with 21 other temples. This temple derives its name from the term 'Vaidya' (doctor). According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva reincarnated in the form of a healer to cure Ravana, who had previously bestowed his ten heads to Lord Shiva. It is assumed that the temple was later discovered after several years by a hunter called as Baiju.

Naulakha Mandir: Located at a distance of 2 km, the Naulakha Mandir's architecture is similar to that of Ramakrishna Math Belur in Kolkata. The famous idols of Radha and Krishna are present in the temple. Queen Charushila, hailing from King Pathuria Ghat's family from Kolkata had donated Rs 9 lakhs for the construction of this temple.Baidyanath Temple
