SINGHESHWARSTHAN

These pandas are,however, comparatively not so rich as the pandas of Gaya or Deoghar Vaidyanath Dham. The treatment meted out by the pandas to the pilgrims is quite good. It is found that none of the 14 families of the pandas has produced a teacher, a lawyer, a doctor or an engineer. Even the economically poorer panda families stand on a false sense of prestige and do not want to do any other work excepting that connected with the temple.

The relative inaccessibility of Singh- eshwarsthan stands in the way of the economic betterment of the pandas or in the improvement of the amenities, for the pilgrims. Road or railway as in the case of Vaidyanath Dham or Puri Jagannath or Varanasi does not directly link the place up. The flow of pilgrims is mostly from within the district, excepting on thebig occasions like Shivaratri, unlike the repeated visits paid to Varanasi or Vaidyanath Dham.

A pilgrim from outside the district rarely repeats his visit to Singheshwarsthan in spite of the great sanctity of the place.The pandas of Singheshwarsthan, as a rule, do not own separate houses where pilgrims could be lodged. The Trust Committee does not find a large enough surplus from where a good pilgrim house could be constructed.
