A Trip to Madhubani

I had been to Madhubani by road in the month of August 2016. Madhubani is a must-visit in the tourism circuit of Bihar. The must-visit attractions around Madhubani include the Kapileswar Temple, Saurath and Uchitha. The Kapileswar Temple is located around 9 kilometers from Madhubani and people across the region visit this holy place every monday during the auspicious Shravan month in the Hindu calendar. The presiding deity here is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Saurath is located between Madhubani and Jayanagar. The major attraction here is the Somnath Mahadev Temple. Every year, the Maithili Brahmins meet here at the yearly sabhas to pursue marriage proposals which eventually get converted into weddings. Uchitha is located on the western banks of the Tumen river where the grand Bhagwati temple is located. The Kalidas Pathshala is located on the south-east part of the Bhagwati temple.
