KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN BIHAR

Apshad - Vishnu Mandir

This reputed Vaishnava kshetra enshrining a grand icon of Sri Mahavishnu and the extensive tank lying here are the gifts of a royal family that left behind a glorious record of service to theism. Inscriptional evidence corroborates several magnanimous kainkaryas offered, and endowments made to this holy temple by the king, his queen and mother. And it seems they vied with one another in offering their mighty mite to make this region resplendent with temples, monasteries, tanks etc. The religious college that throbbed with academic discussions, and spiritual activities was the benefaction of Mahadevi, the mother of the king. The queen caused huge sums diverted for the excavation of the huge tank and the king, not to tag behind them built this holy temple beautified with imposing tower and other essential parts. There are several icons of superb craftsmanship that detain the visitors long, wringing veneration. The nine foot high Varaha image of Mahavishnu with Bhumata catching hold of the tusks and the Lord caressing her with muzzle is an excellent specimen of sculptural araptistry, rarely found any where is a sight that leaves unforgettable impression on the visitors, which the gaze and gape for long. The temple built with gray stone in the Gupta architectural style lies in front of a huge conical brick mound truncated at the top. The stucco panels masterly executed narrate many episodes from Ramayana. A visit to the temple elevates and spiritualises the theists with its location, dimensions, sculpture etc. to a great degree. It is a miss-not temple of great antiquity coupled with divinity.

It lies 22km off Nawadh, the chief town in the Nawadh district of Bihar, accessible by four wheelers from several nearby towns.
