The temple is dedicated to Goddess Shakti, and witnesses hundreds of pilgrims across the years from across the globe.

Multitudes, especially childless women offer sacrifices and prayers at the time praying for their wishes to come true.

The place is a major source of economy for Jharkhand. Other than lending a substantial push to the state’s economy, Jharia also attracts a lot of visitors, who are simply taken aback by the colossal spread of the coal mines. Moreover, the place attracts a number of students and academicians who intend to study the field of metallurgy.

5. Bhatinda Falls

Located at a distance of about 14 km from Dhanbad station, the Bhatinda Falls make a perfect picnic spot. Nestled amidst lush green foliage and dense hillock, these waterfalls provide a captivating sight. The falls are lined by huge rocky boulders. The cascading waterfalls instil a sense of calm and tranquillity in nature enthusiasts. The falls are not very high reaching and hence enable the tourists to traverse the upper reaches.

Best Places To Visit In Deoghar


This is a list of Best Places To Visit In Deoghar. Darshnam Tours offers you online booking of these famous destinations.

  • Baidyanath Temple – According to Hindu mythology, Ravana went to Mount Kailash and prayed to Lord Shiva, who gave him a Jyotirlinga to take to his land, with the promise not to place the lingam anywhere else. In case that happened, the lingam would remain fixed on that spot forever. The gods, who were unhappy at the prospect of the divine lingam being established in the enemy kingdom, which would render them powerless against their adversary, worked a trick on Ravana. He mistakenly handed over the lingam to a brahmin, who grounded it at Deoghar. Ravana did his best to uproot it but beyond breaking the tip he was unsuccessful. In deep remorse, he used to come to this place every day and worship the lingam by offering water from the Ganges. Historically the temple is dated to 1596. The temple has almost all god & goddess and the whole temple is built on a single rock. During the month of ‘Sawan,’ people from across the country come to offer ganga jal to the divine Shiva ling.

For centuries, devotees, in the month of Shravan (June-July) undertake a rigorous 100-km pilgrimage on foot from Ajgaibinath (Sultanganj) in Bhagalpur district to offer holy water from the Ganges to the lingam at Deoghar. Be advised that it is very crowded in Deoghar during this period as more than 5 million devotees visit every year. Hence it is not recommended for a casual traveller to visit Deoghar during these months.
