SONEPUR

Introduction

The Hariharnath temple at Sonepur in Saran district is now more known for the great Sonepur mela on Kartik Purnima day. The meal runs for about a month and is attended by lakhs of people. The congregation is the largest on the Purnima day for the bath in the river and puja at Hariharnath. The village of Sonepur assumes a different look for a month during the meal time.

Sonepur is a very important junction on the North-Eastern Railway. It is the district headquarters of the Traffic andLocomotive Departments. There are large Railway workshops and a number of quarters for employees. The Railway colony has a Recreation Club.
