Baba Baidyanath Temple, Deoghar

#1 of 29 in Historic Sites in Jharkhand
Marvel at the ancient stonemasonry and architecture at Baba Baidyanath Temple, a complex of 22 Hindu temples believed to be the most sacred temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. A landmark of the Deoghar area, the 30 m (72 ft) tall lotus pyramid shaped towers, or shikharas, painted white stand in stark contrast to the city. Noted in several ancient scriptures, this is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga temples, most revered by Shiva followers. The temple houses exquisite 65 kg (143 lb) gold vessels, trident-shaped knives and a rare blue moonstone believed to let droplets of water on the rare Jyotirlinga stone. Enjoy a wide garden area, observe the devotees and try some cookies offered at stands. Make Baba Baidyanath Temple a part of your Deoghar vacation plans using our Deoghar holiday planner.
