Historical Shiva Temple
Apr 2019 • Friends
The history of this place is many centuries old, though the structure standing now has been built recently only. The excavation here has surfaced many age old stone idols and structures which have been housed for demonstration in a museum. The priest said there was a Lotus above which the shiva Linga got established. This might be an indication of fight between Shaiva(followers of Shiva and mostly meat eaters) and Vaishnav(followers of Vishnu and the vegetarians who later practiced Buddhism principally) in which Shaiva came out victors and built the shiva temple above the lotus the sign of Vaishnava.

The area is regarded a sacred place for Hindus, clean, big temples. Photography inside the main temple is prohibited. A religious place to visit if you are around Lakhisarai.

Ashok Dham:Shree Indradamaneshwar Mahadev Temple
Nov 2017 • Family
Located just few kilometres from Lakhisarai, the famous Ashok Dham temple today stands on the site which has a historical as well as spiritual importance.Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple architecture is quite magnificent. The linga in the garbha griha is quite massive.

One of the important pilgrimage sites of Bihar, Ashok Dham's history traces back to Pala rulers of Bengal in the 8th Century AD. Remains of the ancient temple could be seen in the temple premises.There is quite an interesting story behind the rediscovery of the temple site.

The temple witnesses large number of pilgrims visiting everyday.This place is worth visit while one visits Bihar.

Strongly Recommended...

Sacred Temple Hidden Gem
Jun 2016 • Family
Temple is located in Lakhisarai district of Bihar and very beautifully built. I will recommend everyone to visit Bihar since i have found so many amazing places in bihar which is not listed anywhere on travel site. Even this temple was not there.
I was surprised to see lot many foreigners in my travel of Bihar. Even in this temple I found foreigners were worshiping God. I think they realise that true ancient India is found in bihar.
I am sharing few images. This temple has very famous among locals and has religious importance.
