This hoary Ajgaivinath temple houses a Swayambhu linga. It is built on a rock and is adorned with marvelous sculptural pieces. The wall panels are extremely superb and far surpass their counterparts found elsewhere. The temple is washed by the holy waters of Ganga, and the entire landscape is quite picturesque. It is one of three very famous Siva temples of Bihar, the others being Basukinath near Dumka and the last one Vaidyanath at Deogarh in Santal parganas. They attract huge crowds regularly, and on annual festivals Shivaratri, their number exceeds lakhs. It is a great pilgrim centre.

It lies in Sultanganj, one of the advancing cities of Bhagalpur district, and it is a railhead on the loopline of the Eastern Railway running from Calcutta to Kuil.
