Real nature and peace

Yesterday I visited Pahari Mandir to worship Lord Shiva. The place is built completely on the mountain. The steps are made by cutting the rocks. The temple is at quite high above. The place is very clean and well maintained. There is also availability of worship materials nearby the temple. The place is really calm and beautiful.

Enjoyment of hill climbing with spirituality

At the center of capitol hill of Ranchi, this is very famous Baba Bholenath's temple, where devotees once at least in year want to go there for darshan of Shiva-Linga. In the month of Shravana (Hindu Calendar), people have to wait in long queues to offer the Jal(holy water) and fruits etc to pahari Baba.As this temple is situated at the the height of roughly 400 to 450 steps of stairs ways, therefore this is called Pahari Mandir. On the mondays there is special type of Aarti and Satsangs and crowds starts coming from early mornings and remain till late evenings.Side by in another corner of mandir there is small cave, where one can see the living snake, that is supposed to be incarnation of Lord Shiva. In thickly crowded city, one can get fresh air at the top of the spot. Sometimes people go their for picnics also.At the starting point of the mandir there are many stalls and vendors, who sell diya agarbatti, prasadam, coconuts, garlands, etc for offering to the Pahari Baba. There are also many food and other edible items for tourists and devotees. In month of Shravan, various Jhulas etc are also brought by commercial uses. Children love to sit in these Jhulas/Swings.

Temple on the top of the mountain

Visit early morning, some 200 stairs have to climb to reach the temple. There cctv are available. Take prasad down the mountain, if you are alone you take maximum 1 hour and 30 min to do worship and climbing down from the mountain.
