"Welcome to the land of lord shiv."

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Best place for religious tour.
I travelled with my family and found the place quite religious and peaceful.
Avoid travelling during sawan season as the rush at that time is at the peak.
Place is peaceful in offseason and spending some time at the temple premises of baba baidhyanath will surely win your heart.
Must visit for lord Shiva.
Om namah shivaya.

"Deoghar-Home to Mahadev"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Dec 19, 2016
As the name signifies .. Lord Shiva or mahadev resides here. As per Hindu mythology Ravana was being blessed by Lord Shiva to carry him as Shiva lingam but the condition was he must not keep it on ground. While carrying Lord in lingam form through jungles and mountains Ravana got tired and was restless as he was searching for a place to urinate. He gave the lingam to Lord Hanuman to hold it while he goes to be his own. Lord Hanuman kept it on the ground which in turn became permanent. Ravana got angry as he was unable to lift the lingam hence he tried to crush it by his foot. The lingam hence is deeply rooted here and you can only see and pray the tip of lingam. Take enough water as offerings as the person's who are there to offer prayers they become restless at times and during the tug of war to offer flowers and Ganga jail first they will push you.

"A Trip to Deoghar"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Nov 4, 2016
I had been to Deogarh by road in the month of September 2016. Deoghar is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Jharkhand. The must-visit attractions around Deoghar include the Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapith, Shivaganga and Kathikund. The main Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapeeth is located at Belur Math and was established in the year 1922 at Howrah District. Sivaganga is said to be discovered by Ravana. This place is also known as Varvoghar Kund. Kathikund houses the Adinath Temple. Scores of devotees visit the annual festival held every year in the months of February and March.

"Hotel stay is not good."

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted Sep 19, 2016
This is the only sanction Sanitorium of Lord Mahadev where every Pujari want to take money. If money is in the hands, they pull it. If any one do not pay, he/she will be pushed out. There is no discipline at all in side the temple. All discipline and military are working only out side. For VIP QUEU THE HAVE TAKEN RS. 500 each but given tickets of Rs 250 only. Overall a bad experience

"Religious commercial place"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Jan 26, 2016
I visited this place in Jan 2016. I checked with Hotel Priest and he wanted Rs. 2, 100 for performing Abhishekam. Forget it. I was walking to temple and a panda chased me. He said he will take what we give without any demands. It is good I hired him. Just at the queue entrance there was a mad rush. God knows why?. Queue was orderly. When we are entering the temple there was a demand for Rs10 without any receipt. A guy collecting the same. Once we enter the main temple there was again mad rush. People falling down to touch Shiva Lingam. Our Panda pulled people away and we could happily touch Shiva Lingam. He showed all other important places like Mata, Kalika, Lakshmi etc. Supplying Ganges water is another farce. They give a glass of water and demand Rs. 25. Say that they bought it all the way from Ganga. Finally our panda wanted me to donate to the temple and he took me to a counter. I happily paid Rs. 101 and later realised that it was for Panda Welfare Fund and not temple fund. BEWARE. Temple was nice and religious. I ended paying Rs. 100 per head to Panda.

In Jharkhand Deoghar is one of the hottest attraction towards the tourists. The Deoghar Temple is one of the famous temple in India. The architecture of the temple will make you completely surprised. Beside the temple you will be able to visit several places like TRIKUT, NAULAKKHA, NANDAN PAHAR. So this place is a must visit who have not visited this place yet.

"Perfect place for Religious People"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 23, 2015
I visited Deoghar in august 2015, to visit Sri Baidyanath temple, this place is best for religious people, although the place i very crowded but when you go the Sri Baidyanath temple you can feel immense pleasure for having darshan of Lord Baidyanath.

If you are veg, you can find all the daily routine, from roti to sabjee you don't have to take any tension for foods, there are many hotels, restaurant and dhabhas in the area. I book a auto and asked him to take me to some of the best for tourist, the auto driver was kind enough and take me to some of the landmark of Deoghar (I don't remember the name of the places). A little tips to my friend who are reading this review, Beware of Pandas.
