SULTANGANJ - AJGAIVINATH  TEMPLE

This flourishing town had a glorious past and earned a great name for building up commendable traditions. Its old name was Jahangira which derived from the name of sage Jahnu, who lived here then. According to legend, the river Ganga during its course, turned turbulent and disturbed the tranquility of this place, where Maharshi Jahnu was lost in meditation. To humble its pride, as it were, he gulped down its whole mass at a single draught. When Bhagiratha appealed to him to release it, he let it out through his ear. It was fittingly called then Jahnugriha, where Jahnu was dwelling. Later it became corrupted and went by the name of Jahangira. In the Muslim period it was changed to Sultanganj, redolent of Muslim culture, yet it houses many relics of Jain, Buddhist and Hindu relics of great utility and universal significance.
