DHARAMSHALA TOUR-PART-5

DAY 4, APRIL 4, 2018

THE JWALAMUKHI TEMPLE

It was the last day of our Dharamshala tour, after having a bath in the morning, we went to visit The Jwalamukhi Temple. The Jwalamukhi Temple is one of the 51 Shaktipeeths. It is one of the most renowned temples of Goddess Durga. The temple is about 56 km from Dharamshala. It is believed that Sati Devi’s tongue fell here. The temple of Jwalamukhi does not have an idol to worship. The deity is in the form of flame coming out of the rock.

The deity is offered Misri, Seasonal fruit, Rabri and milk. The history of the Jwalamukhi Temple reveals that the Mughal emperor Akbar visited this temple and tried to douse the flame of the temple, but he was unsuccessful. Then he presented a gold chhatri(umbrella) for the goddess.

After having lunch near the temple we traveled to Baijnath. The main attraction of Baijnath is an ancient temple of Lord Shiva. It is a Nagara style Hindu temple situated in a small town of Baijnath located in Kangra district, himachal pradesh, India. It was built in1204 AD.

THE BAIJNATH TEMPLE

A long story is behind the making of this temple. Our driver told us that local people believe that Lord Shiva was impressed by Ravana tapashya and asked him what blessing he wanted. Ravana said that he want to bring Shivji to Lanka(Sri Lanka).Lord Shiva said that he could bring his shivling to Lanka. Ravana tooK The Shivlinga and in the way when he went to bathroom, he met a stranger there and gave that shivling to that person to hold until he came. But the person placed that shivling in that place and the shivling had been fixed there.When Ravana came he saw that the shivling had been fixed there, then he went away to Lanka with sorrow. Later the place known as the name Baijnath. Dussehra is not celebrated in this place because of Ravana.
