Samastipur Info

  • State: Bihar
  • Famous for/as: Heritage
The village of Samastipur is located in the Samastipur district of Bihar. It is an administrative district situated on the banks of the river Budhi Gandak.  Other important rivers flowing through the district are the Baya, Kosi, Kamla, Kareh, Jhamwari and Balan.

Samastipur is a city of temples and is hence famous for religious pursuits. There are several temples dedicated to the Hindu Lord Shiva. Thaneshwar Temple is the most revered Lord Shiva Temple, so is the Khudneshwar Sthan. The former, located in the heart of the city, has several temples within its premises, such as the Shiva Mandir, Ram Mandir, Ganesh Mandir, Kali Mandir and Hanuman Mandir. The Shri Katu Shyam Mandir Temple is situated on the Gola Road.

The temple at Morwa is known as a symbol of Hindu Muslim unity, as it was founded by a Muslim and is the place where the Shivling was originally discovered, several feet under the ground. There is also the Shiva Durga Temple of Kessopatti and Vidyapati Dham, some of the oldest temples in the area.

People on a religious pilgrimage to Samastipur often visit the nearby town of Mannipur in order to seek the blessings of Durga Mata. The tomb of famous poet Vidyapati, called the Vidyapati Dham, is also worth a visit.

The main festival of the region is the Chat Puja, a very popular festival held right after Diwali. This is a good time to visit Samastipur, as the place is deep rooted with festivities, the history and culture.  Even the festivals of Eid and Muharram are celebrated with delight here.

Agriculture is the chief occupation in Samastipur, as the land is fertile. Beetle, tobacco, mango, rice and wheat are the main crops. The sugar industry is the main industry here.

Samastipur is connected to the major towns of Muzzafarpur, Patna and Darbhanga by road and is easily accessible from the National Highway No. 28. Since it is the Divisional Headquarters of the North Eastern Railway, it has direct train links to Calcutta, New Delhi, Patna, Jamshedpur and Dhanbad.

The best time to visit Samastipur is during the winter season, November through February. The rest of the year experiences harsh summer and monsoons and are unfavourable to tour.
