MYSTERIOUS TEMPLES OF LORD SHIVA
Mahadev, the God of the Gods, is seated on this Earth in the form of a linga. That is why Shiva is called the End and Creation of this world. It is very difficult to get past God. That is why it is also very difficult to understand the secret of their temples. This is the reason that even today’s modern science could not understand it.
Five MYSTERIOUS TEMPLES OF LORD SHIVA
1- Sangmeshwar Mahadev Temple
This temple of Sangmeshwar Mahadev situated in Arunay near Pehowa in Haryana is quite mysterious. It is said that a pair of serpents come here on every Mahashivratri and goes after worshiping Lord Shiva, this snake serpent’s pair revolves around the Shiva statue.
According to the Puranas, Lord Shiva himself appeared in the form of Linga here. Which is still present in the temple in the form of Swayambhu Shivling. That is why in the month of Mahashivratri and Sawan, there is a crowd of devotees here.
It is believed that by performing Jalabhishek and worshiping on Shivling here and tying a thread in the Bel tree, all the wishes are fulfilled. After the wish is fulfilled, the thread has to go back to untie. It is said that Goddess Saraswati worshiped Shiva here to get rid of the curse.
2- Siddheshwar Mahadev Temple
The biggest feature of this temple is that the heat takes its fierce form. By the way, the temperature inside the temple decreases here. Even in the hot summer, the temperature of this temple becomes so cold without AC that one has to wear a blanket. The temple is built on top of the Kumhar hill in Orissa. The temperature reaches 55 degrees on the top of the rocky mountain. But still, it remains so cool in this temple that people have to wear blankets. The people here believe that the idols installed here bring coolness. To date, it remains only a mystery that how the heat outside the temple reaches 55 degrees, and inside the temple, it is so cold.
3- Kamalnath Temple
There is an ancient temple of Lord Shiva situated on the hills of Havargarh, about 80 km from Udaipur, the city of lakes. Which is famous as Kamal Nath Mahadev. Its biggest feature is that Ravana is worshiped here before Shiva, because the people here believe that if Ravana is not worshiped before Shiva, then the worship will be considered incomplete. That is why the idol of Ravana is installed in the temple on one side and Shivling is on one side.
There is a pool on the premises of the temple, where a stream of water emerges from inside the ground, and flows throughout the year. It is also called the Haridwar of the tribals because the adjoining tribals immerse their bones in the pool after the death of any of their relatives. This temple is famous for its unique rituals and worship of Ravana.
4- Mahamandaleshwar Shivling
It is the law of law that a person who takes birth on earth is bound to die. After the death of a person, his soul leaves the body and once the soul leaves the body, it does not return to the body. But there is such a temple of Lord Shiva where if the dead body is taken away, the soul re-enters the dead body. It is very difficult to believe this But it is true.
This temple located in Lakhmandal at a distance of 128 km from Dehradun is very unique. It is believed that Duryodhana had built a Lakshagriha here during the Mahabharata period to kill the Pandavas by burning them. During his exile, Yudhishthira established Shivling here which is still present in the temple. The Shivling located in the Lakhamandal temple is called Mahamandaleshwar.
Two gatekeepers are standing in the courtyard of the temple, facing west, it is said that if any dead person is placed in front of these gatekeepers, he becomes alive. After being alive that soul takes the name of Shiva and takes the Ganges water and leaves the body again. Two gatekeepers in this temple stand as guards. One of the two gatekeepers has his hand chopped off, which remains an unsolved mystery. A special feature of this Shivling is that when a person performs Jalabhishek of this Shivling, then the image of that person is clearly visible in the Shivling.
5- SAMBALPUR SHIV MANDIR
Although there are many places to visit in India, there are many towers to see. And many of the minarets are leaning in their base. Situated in the state of Orissa, India, there is a temple of Shiva which is tilted from its base. You may feel that the bending of the temple is a common thing. But the bending of this temple is not common because the temple here is built on a rocky place. Despite this, its bowing is nothing less than a wonder. This temple is located in Sambalpur village, about 23 km from Orissa. The people here say that this temple was established by Raja Baliad Singh Deo of the Chauhan dynasty of Sambal in 1960.
Local people tell that when there was no temple here. A cow used to come here daily to anoint it with its milk. When the owner of that cow came to know about this, he came there daily and started worshiping. Seeing him worshiping, king Balaramdev built a small temple there. After this, King Baliad Dev got this temple rebuilt. But the place where it was built is quite rocky, despite this, when and how did this temple bow down? This has not been known to date.
