In last two articles,
I shared about
2. Shiva temple.
Today, I introduce you
Dharmanaya temple locates
the outskirts of the village
and it’s about 0.5km from
From ancient times,
local people kept praying
for having babies at this temple.
They hold pooja,
More than 150,000 people participated Yaggya,
fire ceremony at this place.
To a big well in the temple,
people throw offerings
used in pooja ceremony
for their ancestors.
This means series of pooja for ancestors
to leads to Moksha ends at last.
The flow of the pooja is as follows, actually.
1.Pooja at Saraswati temple
2.Pooja at Shiva temple
3.Pooja at Dharmanaya temple
4.throw all the offerings to the well
By the way…
This temple has
two other commonly known names.
One is “Buddha palace”.
Because it is said that
Buddha dropped here
after 6-year-ascetic practices
at Mahakara mountain.
The other name is “Ghost temple”.
I asked to one of the villagers.
To the well of the temple,
people kept throwing their hair
to drive away evil spirit
other than offerings
used in pooja ceremony.
Thousands or millions of people’s hair
with evil spirit…
That’s why ghost appear
this place at night.
This is the reason villager call the temple
The temple is lively
with study groups
such as learning Sanskrit at daytime,
but after it gets dark,
no villagers visit here.
Because they afraid the ghosts.
Ghost temple locates at deserted place
with lots of palm trees.
No light at all,
only the moon light helps.
But If you are courageous enough,
shall we go to the temple
