Delhi to Deoghar, Jharkhand Part One
Deoghar is a holy city in Jharkhand. It is famous for one of the Jyotirlinga of Shiva- Sri Ravaneshwar Baidhyanath. Every Hindu wants to visit maximum number of Jyotirlinga in his life. I have visited Deoghar many times, but this time I went there with my kids. It was a new experience for them. They were very excited to visit a new place – The town of Bholenath. When you go there, you will forget everything except Bholenath.
|At Jasidih Junction|
To go to Deoghar you have to reach Jasidih Junction. It is well connected by trains. People across India reach this station. From where you have to catch bus or auto to reach Deoghar.
As you arrive Deoghar near Tower Chowk you have to go to Shiv Ganga ( Holy Pond), fresh your self, take dip in Shiv Ganga, Take holy water from Panda if you come through train and do not bring Ganga Jal, ( kaawariyas who come from Sultanganj (Bihar) have Ganga Jal with them). People who perform yatra, they first go to Sultanganj, take GangaJal and start their yatra of 105 km. It is the longest route a kaawariya travel on foot to reach Deoghar. You see many Dak Bam who travel this route of 105 km just within 24 hours. This yatra is going on throughout the year, but month of Saawan is the most religious month for this yatra.
