VARAHAVATARA KSHETRAS IN UTTAR PRADESH

Jhansi - Varaha Mandir

Jhansi, the principal town of the east-while princely state of Bundelkhand claims many monuments of great historical importance and spiritual significance. The very name of Jhansi conjures up a series of pictures of the heroic young Rani Jhansi, who caused night mares to the British stretching their long blood stained greedy hand for annexation of her kingdom. The fort, though in ruins contains very hoary temples devoulty visited by the royalty and patronised lavishly. There are built for all deities adorning the Hindu Pantheon. Among the temples found in the ruined fort, the Varahaswamy temple is one sharing the misfortune of the fort and its once exalted princess.

Though in ruins, the temple bears the indelible signs of its former glory and the princes passion for religion. Its courtyards, compound wall, tower speak volumes of its past splendour beckoning visitation by theists. There are many other temples in dilapidated conditions dedicated to Jain gods and Sakti divinities.

It lies in Jhansi, accessible by train or bus and it is the railhead too.
