Deoghar—Revisited

In my previous post Deoghar—Baidyanath Dham I have shared the mythological story and the religious importance of the place Deoghar. But except the religious purpose this place can be visited for weather change, there are many attractions there…

Tapoban

It’s a not so large hill but large and big enough to make anyone surprised. Full of huge size of rocks, the most interesting event of this pace is…until you feed some monkeys, those are great in numbers, you will not be able to explore this place coz they will disturb (They don’t hurt anyone) you continuously, you don’t need to feed to all the monkeys, you just have to feed some of them and that’s enough.

There are caves in Tapoban and one the cave enshrining the Shivalingam one of the prime attractions of the place.

It’s 10km away from main town.

Trikut

 

This is also a hill area, the name Trikut means three peaks, “Tri” means three, this hill actually has three tops, it’s very tough to climb at the tops of this mountain coz its straight from the ground, until you are a rock climber you can only enjoy this place from ground or accessing the ropeway. It’s 2470ft in height.

Nandan park

This is a park dedicated to one of the two most closed followers of Lord Shiva, Nandi.

There are many events to enjoy, like the ‘Bhoot Ghar’(The Ghost House), the magical mirror, sliding through Nandi’s tongue apart from all the natural scenery is indescribable.

Nau Lakha Temple

This temple is named “Nau Lakha” coz it took nine lakh rupees to build, in Sanskrit and Hindi “Nau” means nine, this temple was made by Queen Charushila Devi, more than 75 years ago, it’s a 146 ft in height and this temple has resemblance with Belur math Kolkata, its situated 2km from main town.

Special Food

Whenever the name Deoghar comes into mind the name of the food first comes is Peda, it’s a type of sweet made from concentrated milk, the more pure the milk is the more tasty the Peda, visiting Deoghar and did not eat Peda is one of the greatest mistake for sure.
