"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.

"Very nice place to visit requires atleast a week stay"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 14, 2015
T is a great feeling when you visit the holy temple. You feel really connected to shiv. The euphoria of the surrounding is mesmerizing. If you visit on auspicious days, purnimas or shivratri or the shravan month then you can see the huge gathering. Lakhs of devotees visit the temple everyday on these days. You may find difficulties dealing with local pandas and tackling the rush but overall its a divine experience.

Peras sold around the temple as prashad are very tasty but be sure about the shop. Each shop gives free samples for tasting purpose. Don't buy from makeshift Shops or tents. You can find many toy shops and shops selling pooja utensils.

For eating, tasty and better food is available near tower chowk at reasonable prices. Don't eat from hotels near the temple. They are unhygienic and not upto the mark instead tower chowk is 10 minutes walk from temple. Quality restaurants are also located away from temple around tower chowk area. You can reach here by train to Jasidih junction located on ndls-mgs-pnbe- hwh main line.

Baidyanathdham railway station located 6 km and Deoghar 6 km north of Jasidih. Lots of auto ricshaws are available and there is no problem in reaching Deoghar from jasidih. Flight facilities are available from Ranchi during Shravan.

Places around Deoghar:

Basukinath temple-61km from Deoghar transport is easily available by road and railways. Tarapeeth-170 km from Deoghar. Buses and private vehicles available. The journey is scenic with Massanjor dam in way. By train Deoghar is connected to Rampurhat you can get auto's from there. Trikut hills- great scenic place 14km from city. Tapovan hills-13 km from city can get good adventure crawling through caves and trekking. Nandan hills- super picnic spot and enjoyment for children 3km from city. Naulakha Temple-nice temple 9km from city. Rekhia ashram-6km from city. Many foreigners come for yoga activity. Satsang ashram 3 km from city. Bhagalpur, Sultanganj, etc. It requires at least 7 days stay if you want to experience a very memorable journey. Do attend the evening Shringar at the main temple. The dahi(curd) is awesome buy from good shop. Tilkuts in winter and paranthas from paratha gali are tasty

"Religious but not Spiritual"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Dec 12, 2015
I visited Deoghar in October 2015 for a job purpose. The place is a pilgrimage where loads of people come with good intentions; or I hope they do. I respect all the religions but do not conform to any particular one as I am more of a spiritual kind. I visited the temples and I was amazed by the devotion of so many people. However the entire atmosphere lacked the spirituality. It is definitely not a place for any traveller. Tourists may like it. Although I liked the outskirts of the main town for its amazing landscape. If you are in Deoghar just rent a car and take a long drive from Deoghar to Dubrajpur via Sarath and Palojori. You may take an occasional break and stop at the secluded hillsides and have a picnic on the plain fields.

Nice place to take out some time and look at the natural beauties. Tirkut parvat is an attractive place. Baba Baidyanath Mandir is a religious place were people come from around the country. There are many shopping places. Take a trip to multiple Asharams nearby.

"A holy place"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jun 10, 2015
It's a very ancient temple of shiva (a very ancient shivling ) lots of people visit this place in the month of monsoon specially in (sawan).

This is a holy place for hindu where people do worship and perform it individually, also in an informal or formal group, or by a designated leader. Here Worship have different meaning or people perform it in a different way.

Famous fast food is jhal muri, its awesome in taste another special food is DAL CHAWAL CHOKHA what local people call it.

Local food. One can visit the place by train.
