Siddhavat is a huge banyan tree that has flourished on the bank of River Shipra and holds immense religious importance, like the Akashyavat in Prayag and Gaya and the Panchavat of Nasik. A good number of pilgrims take a dip in River Shipra from the bathing ghat built at the place. The site was popular as the worshipping place of the followers of the Natha sect.

It is said that the Mughal rulers cut off the banyan tree and they covered the entire area with iron sheets to restrict the growth of the tree. However, this sacred tree pierced the iron sheets and flourished significantly. There is a hamlet near Siddhavat, called Bhairogarh, which is renowned for its tie and dye painting for decades.

"Temple for Banian Tree"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Siddhavat is an old Banyan tree on the banks of Shipra river and has a great religious importance. Pilgrims take a dip in the Shipra river. This place was also a popular worshipping place of Nath sect. Long ago Moghul rulers cut off the Banian tree and covered the whole area with iron sheet to prevent its growth. But this tree pierced the iron sheet and flourished wonderfully. So a temple was built and this tree is worshipped with great reverence.
