UCHAITHA

It is said that the late Maharajadhiraja Sir Rameshwar Singh of Darbhanga had expressed his desire to reinstate the head of' the image. Accordingly, an order was placed and the head was carved out. Before the installation of the head he had a dream in which the goddess told him, ''I am the creator and you want to create my head. Do you think it is proper for you to create my head?"The Maharajadhiraja was upset. The Mahantha of Uchaitha temple had also the same dream. At last it was decided that the head should not be installed.

The priests of the temple took the head from the Maharajadhiraja and kept it near the image to offer it the usual offerings. The stone head is still lying in the temple precincts. A few years ago, the tank was cleaned and a number of images were found. All of them were removed to the Patna Museum. The site is very old and an excavation may yield good results.

In front of the temple of the goddess Durga there is newly constructed a temple of Lord Shiva. There is also a small temple of Bhairava in the rear side of the Shiva temple. Just below these temples flows the river Kamla.
