Janakpur, the capital of the ancient kingdom of Mithila of legendary king Janaka, possesses some rare spiritual treasures in the form of temples dedicated to several deities and sages. Among them the Saivate temples stand out supreme in points of number and exquisite architecture. Temples like Kapaleeswara, Kupeeswara, Kalyaneeswara, Jaleswara, Ksheereswara and Mithileswara signify the magnitude of Saivaaradhana and the influence of Siva even in the past. In all these shrines regular prayer services are being offered to Sivalingas since time immemorial. Near about these holy shrines are found the sites for asrams, where sages like Gautama, Yagnavalkya, Valmiki, Viswamitra lived either temporarily or permanently. The area thus sanctified by their association. was chosen rightly for construction of shrines for Rama, Janaki, Dasaratha etc. A right choice and befitting honour ! The mandirs mentioned above houses all the worshipful deities installed in the befitting mini-mandirs.

This lies at a distance of 35 km to Janakpur railway station in the state of Bihar. Road journey can be made from Darbhanga in buses and four wheelers.
