Garibnath mandir

It is early morning. Amidst the blowing of conch
Shells and the sound of dhol, manjeera, a group
Of devotees can be seen dancing on the narrow
Pathway leading to Baba Garibnath Temple at
Purna Bazar, Muzaffarpur. The temple
Reverberates with the sounds of keertan that
Follow, while bel patra and milk continue to flow
On the pindi as the offerings continue. The Lord
Grants the wishes of all, but particularly those of
The poor and this faith is writ large on all the
Faces here.
Are more than 10 Gareebnath temples in
The country. In this one people worship a
Swayambhu Shivalinga, one that has evolved by
Divine power, " says Amarnath Pathak, the priest,
Who is also member of the Mahant family of this
Temple that is said to be about 300 years old. A
Story associated with it tells us about the
Landlord who sold this land to Badrinath
Chachan. While getting the vat vriksha on the
Premises cut, on reaching the fifth of the seven
Trees, somehow the Swayambhu Shivalinga about
Which none had any inkling, got hit.
"The pink cemented structure has a dome with
Seven kalasha, made of ashtadhatu. "
It is said blood started flowing and Chachan, in
Fear and devotion, initially made a temporary
Temple there. The poor landlord who had sold off
The land, too started worshipping here and it is
Believed Lord Shiva appeared in disguise to help
In the marriage of his daughter. Since then it has
Been called Shivalinga Garibnath or the Lord of
The poor. In 2006, Kedarnath, son of Badrinath,
Gave concrete structure to this 120 feet high
Temple, now functioning under the Garibnath
Nyas Samiti. The pink cemented structure has a
Dome with seven kalasha, made of ashtadhatu
And one of the seven banyan trees, still stands
Tall adjacent the main structure.
The sanctum here has the Swayambhu
Shivalinga, 1. 5 feet below the flooring with the
Base covered with silver and argha, an octagonal
Ashtadhatu covering structure. Small temples
With statues of Kartikeya, Ganesha, dot the
Compound. A lot of attention is preserved for
Nandi, with youngsters in particular whispering
Their wishes into its ears. In the northeast
Direction of the sanctum, marble statues of
Radha-Krishna and Surya Narayana are coming
Up. Statues of Bhagwan Shri Satyanarayana andi
Ashtamukhi Ekadasha Rudra rest on two
Different floors of this tall, vertically established
Composite temple structure. Chandrakoopa or
The holy well is from where water is drawn for
Offering, while chants of stuti gaan rents the air.
With almost 10, 000 devotees coming everyday,
The crowd, swells to even 50, 000 on Mondays
And Fridays!

Overall a nice city to go

This is so good city. I liked it so much. There is many places to travel. Like Baba Garibnath temple, Durga sthan. And many more temples like this and there is also many types of shopping malls like: Vishal Mega Mart, Kolkata bazaar, Reliance trends, Max mart etc.
