The Mystery Of Tuti Jharna Temple

Tuti Jharna Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva is a temple in Bongabar, a village in Mandu block in the Ramgarh district of Jharkhand where it is believed that Goddess Ganga herself pour water on the Shivalinga. And the most interesting thing is the water, runs down the Shivalinga, for twenty-four seven.

The History of Tuti Jharna Temple

It all started in the year 1925 when the Britishers were installing railway lines in this area. The workmen were digging the land for water, and suddenly they could see a dome appearing from underneath. The Britishers were surprised and to know more about the dome, they instructed the workmen to completely dig the ground.

After digging out completely, the Britishers found it to be a temple with a Shivlinga installed. But they were more surprised to see an Idol of Goddess Ganga, right above the Shivlinga from where water was coming out continuously.

The water was running down the navel of the Goddess and was falling on the Shivlinga through both her hands as if the idol of the Goddess was pouring the water on the Shivlinga.

Surprisingly, the water still flows through the idol of Goddess Ganga and has never stopped for once since then. The two handpumps found within the temple complex are also filled with mystery. Water from both the handpumps flows automatically, without any break. To more surprise, a river flows just beside the temple, which gets dried during the summer season, but the water in the temple never dries up. To date, no one has been able to track down the source of water in the temple.

Thousands of devotees visit the temple each year. It is believed that all the wishes of those who visit the temple are granted by the Lord.
