Deoghar, literally meaning “the abode of the gods”, can arguably be called the spiritual centre of the state of Jharkhand. It is also known as Baba Dham, enshrines a scared Jyotirlinga. Considered to be one of the most sacred abodes of Lord Shiva. Baidyanath Dham is also one of the Puranic tirthas, consider to be as holy as Haridwar, Rameshwaram and Badrinath. Baidyanath Dham drives its name from the belief that Shiva presides here as a Baidya or a Physician.
As written in Shiva Purana, Ravana was a great devotee of Shiva and wanted the Lord to visit his Home in Lanka. Shiva gave him a Linga to establish in his country, assuring him that the presence of his Linga would to be equal to having him there. The only condition was that he could only put it on the ground. Once he reached his destination and not before that, or else the linga would take root wherever it was placed. All the other gods felt very uncomfortable with the thought of Ravana carrying away something which possessed so much power and devised a ruse to distract him.
It is said that the god of water interred Ravana body and he had to descend on earth to relieve himself. Vishnu then, disguised as a Brahim, offered to hold the linga for him in the meanwhile. However, as soon as he was handed the linga, he put it on the ground. When Ravana returned he found the Brahim missing and the Linga formally rooted in the ground. Despite his best effort, it could not be uprooted. This is where the present temple was built, to house the revered Jyotirlinga.
Baba Baidyanath Temple
Shrine of one of the twelve Jyotirlingas, the Baba Baidyanath temple houses twenty-one other temples of different Gods and Goddesses. It is said that Ravana worshipped Lord Shiva and offered his ten heads as the sacrifice; impressed with which, Lord Shiva came to cure him as a ‘Vaidya’—doctor. That is how the temple derives its name ‘Baidyanath’. The temple is also one of the Shakti Peeths, with the two temples — of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva — linked together to show the sacred bond of Shiva and Shakti. In the month of Shravan (August), the devotees bring sacred water from the Ganges to wash the Jyotirlinga with.
Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapith
Located in the heart of Deoghar, and established in 1922, Ram-Krishna Mission Vidyapeeth is the oldest educational institution of the Ram-Krishna Mission. It is now a senior secondary school for boys and used to be visited by the brother disciples of Swami Vivekananda. Monks and Brahmacharins run the institution, which includes teachers from all over India, along with those from foreign countries. There are a greenhouse and a small medicinal orchard aside from an established museum showing the ancient and tribal heritage of India. The most attractive feature is the temple of Shri Ram Krishna where religious festivals are carried out.
Located about 2km away from the Baba Baidyanath Temple, the Noulakha temple is a shrine of the idols of Radha and Krishna; also a major Hindu pilgrimage centre. A calm and peaceful temple, it stretches to about 146ft in height. Built in 1948, the Noulakha temple was the creation of a saint known as Shree Balananda Brahmachari. A queen of the Pathuria Ghat royal family, Rani Charushila, is said to have donated the money for this temple to be built. It is believed that she had lost her son and husband, which led to her approaching the saint in her sorrowful state. He then advised her to have said temple constructed. It is about 8km away from Tapovan— another area that consists of a number of caves, where the saint Balananda used to meditate.
