Deogarh

Baba Baidyanath Temple

Ravana, the king of Lanka now Srilanka, a great ruler and scholar has been one of the greatest devotees of the lord Shiva. Though a great scholar, it is believed that he was very much arrogant and stubborn.

One day his obstinate mind drove him to bring his favorite god, lord Shiva, to his house permanently. To fulfill this dream, he went to mount Kailash, the place where lord Shiva used to live with his family and in order to please the supreme lord he cut his head and put it as a sign of sacrifice to please the lord Shiva, but lord Shiva replaced his head with new ones every time. This process was repeated Nine times, after which Shiva was happy & pleased with Ravana’s resilience & devotion and decided to shift his home permanently from Mount Kailash in Himalayas to Srilanka.

Lord Shiva was ready to shift to his new home but he had a deal with Ravana that though he was ready to go along with Ravana to Lanka in form of a lingam but Ravana won’t keep the lord on the earth for a single moment until he reaches Lanka. However, if he keeps the God on earth, he wont be able to uproot the God out of once kept on the ground. Happily accepting the deal Ravana was ready to take the God to his home.
Seeing the supreme lord, lord Shiva, known for his whimsical and blithe behavior being shifted over to a demon’s house, there was an “SOS” like critical situation in the heavens where all the Gods resided. It was so because if the supreme lord moves over to a demon house then no one would be able to defeat him and one day, Ravana might rule the heaven expelling all the Gods out of heaven.
Lord Vishnu is said to be guru and rescuer of all the Gods. So, all the Gods decided to hold a meeting with the Guru to find a solution to keep the supreme lord out of reach of the Lanka, the kingdom of Ravana.
In the meeting, it was decided that the Ganges will enter inside the Ravana’s body forcing to relieve himself. According to Hindu mythology, a God can not be touched with the hands that has been used in passing water out of body until it’s washed. So, the Ganges entered inside the body of the king ravana forcing him to pee. While Guru Vishnu disguised as a shepherd was watching the whole scene. Ravana, unable to control asked the disguised shepherd to hold the Lingam until he finished peeing. But, it took so long to pass the water since passing the Ganges out was not an easy task. Tired of the time taken by Ravana, the shepherd put down the Lingam on the ground.

After finishing his job, Ravana needed water to wash over his hands. There was not any source of water around so he pressed the earth with his thumb to get the water out of the earth. This place is called “Shiva-Ganga” these days.

After washing his hands, he tried to uproot the Lingam out of the earth but he couldn’t. It is said that he used his full power to uproot the Lingam and even the whole earth shook but he could not get the Lingam out. In anger, he pressed the Lingam inside the earth. And this is how one of the twelve lingams of Lord Shiva came into existence. Until recently, people used to worship the earthened lingam when engineers took the lingam out of the earth.

Legend of Sitamarhi

As the legend goes Goddess Laxmi and Lord Vishnu incarnated as Sita and Rama in Treta Yuga. In Indian mythology whole epoch of existence of earth has been divided into four parts i.e. Satyuga, Treta, Dwapara and Kaliyuga. Lord Vishnu was cursed by Sage Narada that he would feel the agony of separation of his beloved as he was humiliated by behavior of Lord Rama in MohiniRupa. As a consequence Lord Rama got separated from his wife Sita when Ravana abducted her while he was in exile. When Lord Rama conquered Ravana and killed him he took his wife to Ayodhya. As the story belongs to the Later Vedic period when much of female’s status in society has deteriorated and chastity of women had become prominent. It is said that Lord Rama was made to prove chastity of her wife as she had spent a long time in Lanka, the abode of Ravana, the demon. To maintain public sentiment Lord Rama sent Sita in exile where she stayed in Ashrama of Sage Valmiki who has written Ramayana, the Sanskrit version. There she gave birth to Luv and Sage made one more infant with his divine power that was named Kusha.

As traditions, when Lord Rama performed Ashwamedha Yajna to prove his might over other rulers his Ashwa (Horse) was captured by Luv and Kusha. When he reached at the place where his horse was tied he was introduced by Sage Valmiki with his own sons. He was also asked to take Sita as she was pious. Rama asked Sita to establish her chastity before people of Ayodhya. Since Sita was innocent, she couldn’t bear the humiliation anymore and asked her mother earth to take her with herself. Soon earth erupted and Sita was submerged into it.

Sitamarhi thus carries deep religious values and significance and is considered a holy pilgrimage centers like Prayagraj & Kashi. Today, here stands a magnificent and beautiful Shree SitaSamahit Temple visited by thousands of pilgrim everyday with deep faith and reverence.

The place is serene and soothing to visitor which also gives you some spiritual inspiration besides architectural and sculptural magnificence.

The local inhabitants believe that if deeps (earthen lamps) of ghee or mustard oil are lit in the temple for fifteen or thirty days, their wishes are fulfilled, so hundreds of deeps are lit every day, adding to the beauty and religious significance of this place. This place is adjacent to Lord Shiva temple.
