PREFACE

The religiosity of the people in Bihar has found a recent expression in the Kaliji temple at Bettiah, established by one of the Bettiah Maharajas a few decades back. This temple is very little known outside Champaran district. The Maharaja had collected about 480 images of Hindu deities from all over India. He had installed them in this temple. Each and every image is duly worshipped even now by a large number of Pujaris. The Maharaja had made endowments for the proper maintenance of this fine institution. This temple with its 480 images of the Hindu pantheon is a marvelous institution. No student of ancient Indian history and culture should fail to -visit this Kaliji temple at Bettiah.

The legends associated with the temples- of Bihar make the temples all the more interesting. Bihar is, verily, the confluence of different religious creeds. Various currents of Hinduism like Saivism, Vaishnavism, Tantricism, and Buddhism in its different phases, Jainism, Sikhism etc, had found millions of adherents in Bihar.
