2. HANUMAN GARHI- Near the Pandev Kila (Fort) there is a huge size
stone-carved murti of Shri Hanuman Ji. Shri Ram and Lakshman are
sitting on the shoulders of Hanuman ji. After winning Ahiravana in
patal lok, Hanuman ji first emerged at this place, hence this place is
significant in the heart of people. Since the Hanuman Ji is facing
towards south the temple is also called Dakshireshwar Hanuman ji.

3. LALITA DEVI- According to various Puraanas,


When Sathi Devi burnt herself in the Yoga Agni
after Daksha Yajna, Siva carried her body on
his shoulders and started performing Siva
Thandav. With this, creation of universe is
affected and so Vishnu divided Sathi Devi's
body into 108 parts.
The part that is present in Naimisharanya is
the heart of Sathi Devi and is one of the
Shakthi Peeths known as Lingadhaarinee
Lalitha Devi.

4. DADDECHI KUND- Around 10 km. away from


Naimisharanya, Mishrikh is also a holy Tirth.
As per legends, Devats requested Brahma ji to
help them to destruct Vatrasur who was a
source of harassment to them. Hence
Maharishi Dadhichi was requested to provide
his bones for making a Vajra. Before giving

directed them to spread the Knowledge to the
world.

ANANDMAYI- This is an ancient temple where 4
Veds have been kept. Nearby is the Ma
Anandmayi Ashram. Swami Nardanand Temple
is worth visiting where still spiritual education
is imparted in the traditional manner.
Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's Paramhans Math, SOURCE: www.naimisharanya.in

worth seeing.

HISTORICAL & RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE



Once upon a time, the sages requested Brahma to point a holy place
where the influence of Kali Yug is not felt and where worship yields
the desired fruits. Brahma had created a Chakra (disc) from his heart
and threw it saying, "Wherever the Nami or center of this disc lands,
there, a very sacred and fast result-yielding place is created." Since
Nami landed, this place is known as Naimisharanya. This is stated
inKoorma Puraana,Siva Puraana,Padma Puraana,Devi
Bhaagavatham,Vaayu Puraana,Matsya Puraanaand many
more Puraanas.
Naimisharanya is the birthplace of many puraanas. Here, many sages
have gathered Knowledge for realizing self.
It is because of its historic importance that people from all over India
visit this holy place.
