Deoghar(देवघर): Where Culture and Spirituality Converge🙏

Story-------

The Hindi word "Deoghar" literally means "abode of the Gods and Goddesses," or "dev's ghar." Other names for Deoghar include "Baidyanath Dham" and "Baba Dham." The history of Baidyanathdham's beginnings is obscure. In Sanskrit texts, it has been referred to as Haritakivan or Ketakivan. The construction of the enormous temple dedicated to Lord Baidyanath is likely the cause of the term Deoghar's recent occurrence. Deoghar is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, and during the month of Shravan, When a devotee travels by Ganga jal from Sultanganj to Deoghar for worship, they fulfil their life's ambition. The Baidyanath temple in Deoghar is also called Shaktipeeth; Mata Sati's heart had dropped here.

There are twelve Jyotirlingas, one of which is Baidyanath Dham in Deoghar. This Dwadash Jyotirlinga's most unique feature is that it is the only Shiva temple in the entire globe where Shiva and Shakti are seated side by side. Because of this, it is also known as Shaktipeeth. It is said in folklore that Mata Sati's heart dropped here after being chopped; for this reason, it is also known as Hriday Peeth.

It is said that when followers of Baba Bhole bring Kanwar to Sawan's Baba Baijnath shrine, they receive Shakti and Shiva's blessings.


When visiting Deoghar, there are several must-visit places that showcase the city's rich cultural and spiritual heritage. Here are some notable attractions:


1.Baidyanath Temple:- Along with 12 other temples, the Baba Baidyanath Temple Complex contains a Jyotirlinga. Due to its religious significance and exquisite architecture, the Baidyanath Temple, one of India's holiest temples, occupies a spiritual high ground above other temples.



2.Nandan Pahar:- Near the outskirts of Deoghar lies a small hill called Nandan Pahar, which is home to a well-known Nandi Temple. There is also a sizable children's amusement park with a restaurant, a boot house, a ghost house, and a mirror house.





3.Naulakha temple:- In Deoghar, Jharkhand, you may find the Naulakha Mandir. Just 1.5 kilometres away from the main temple lies the Baba Baidyanath Dham Temple, which is well-known. This Radha-Krishna temple stands 146 feet tall. It is also referred to as the Naulakha (Nine-Lakh) temple because it cost Rs. 9 lakhs to build. The Ramakrishna Temple in Belur and this temple are remarkably similar.



4.Basukinath:- The Basukinath Temple is frequently mistaken with Baba Bhole Nath's court. In the Basukinath Temple, the Shiv and Parvati temples are situated directly in front of one another. Both of these temples' gates open in the evening, and it is thought that this is when Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati cross paths. Devotees are therefore asked to get away from the temple's main entrance. Inside the complex, there are also additional minor temples dedicated to various Gods and Goddesses.





5.Satsang Ashram:- The Satsang Ashram is a sacred location where Sri Sri Thakur Anukulachandra's devotees congregate to pray. In addition, the Ashram's property includes a zoo and a museum.



ऊँ हौं जूं स: ऊँ भुर्भव: स्व: ऊँ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्। ऊर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात् ऊँ भुव: भू: स्व: ऊँ स: जूं हौं ऊँ।। ऊँ नम: शिवाय।। ओम साधो जातये नम:।।
