PHULHER

Vishwamitra, the guru of Rama, commemorated by a temple of Rama and Sita at Besaul, which lies about four miles from Phulher village. It is said that Besaul was the place where Vishwamitra Muni. Had his ashram and Rama and Lakshmana were his disciples at this ashram. The Girija temple of Phulher, although in an inaccessible place, deserves a special mention as it has a fine legend behind it.

This temple, situated at Phulher village about 40 miles north-west of Darbhanga railway station of the North-Eastern Railway, has an ancient, sweet and ennobling halo around it. The communi- cation to the temple is very poor. There is a metalled road from Darbhaga toBenipatti and then an unmetalled road of the District Board leads up to Hisar, which is 8 miles from Benipatti. Hisar is not accessible by any road during the rainy season.

From Hisar to Phulher-a distance of 3 miles-there is merely a footpath through the fields, which is negotiable only by foot or by cycle. Another approach is through the Phulher-Ilarlakhi road, which passes through the north side of the temple and that also is unmetalled.
