VAISALI - HARIKATORA MANDIR

Although Saivism took deep roots in Bihar and its surrounding states, temples dedicated to Lord Subrahmanya, the darling son of Siva and Parvathi are rare. And the existing ones too are not maintained with reverence due. No doubt in major Sivaalayas, his icon is installed in mini-mandaps and niches and adored, but due recognition to his role as the Commander-in Chief of the celestial army is not given as in the south, particularly Tamil Nadu, where one can come across a big shrine at every fifth mile, as a matter of fact. This shrine lies in the east-while famous historic town of Vaisali. Though it is in ruins, regular worship is offered with due veneration. May be it is due to Jainism that extended its unlimited sway, before and after Christian era in these region. Muruga or Siva are not adored as in the south. This is regularly visited by the locals and nityanaimithika worship is performed with due veneration. Another one in its vicinity called Bhagawan Pokhar temple is equally in dilapidated condition, but offering of regular worship is going on, and it contains many images of deities of great religious sanctity.

'this lies in Vaisali 55 km off Patna of Bihar state, accessible by bus from Patna or other towns like Hajipur.
