Shri Pashupatinath Temple – From Here Lord Shankar Used to Take Flowers to Vrindavan

Shri Pashupatinath Temple, Deeg (Bharatpur, Rajasthan, India)

Lunch over at Badrinath. A short nap and the drive towards the temple which we saw earlier if you remember.

Pashupatinath temple – the correct name is situated at Deeg nearby Pashopa Village in Bharatpur district of Uttar Pradesh and approx. 7 km from Aadi Badri Dham. The village below the hill and they guided us on how to reach. 100 approx. steps.

Watching the surroundings, green fields, villages – view from the mountain top is beautiful and we are all in front of the priest to know The History of Shri Pashupatinath Temple.

Pushpvan i.e., Garden of flowers – from here Lord Shankar used to take flowers to Vrindavan to make garlands to be presented to Radha. He himself appears as Gopi to watch Maharaas. The village name is Pashopa. During Shivaratri hundreds of devotees from all villages nearby visit the temple to offer prayers.

While returning, we saw a few old ladies with lots of courage or maybe devotion towards Lord Shankar temple climbing slowly-n-slowly to reach the deity to offer prayers. Salute – said I. And few resting may be unable to reach as they were tired already. Anyways, that is respected too. One should not be over-courageous. A precaution is better than a cure – they say.

We were served tea/water by a village house and cot as well to rest. Upon the request from the villages, we call everybody to be present and a small session of bhajan, Kirtan. They won our hearts for sure.

Time was less as evening hours were not that far we said bye-bye shukriya and towards our next destination i.e., Kedarnath.
