Daksha Mahadev Temple – Haridwar

DakshaMahadevTemple, Haridwar is located at south Kankhal in Haridwar. The temple is located around 4 km from the center of Haridwar town. Legend has it that Daksha Prajapati, father of Sati Devi performed yagya at this place. Daksha Prajapati did not invite Shiva and Sati went to ask for the reason and was insulted. Sati self immolated in the Yagya Kund. Shiva Ganas created havoc at the spot and Daksha was killed. Shiva later brought Daksha to life by placing a head of goat.
The spot attracts thousands of Shiva devotees daily. The temple is also an important gathering spot during Shivratri. The present temple was built by Queen Dhankaur in 1810 AD and rebuilt in 1962.
There is a beautiful sculpture of Shiva carrying Sati’s body in the compound. Another important sacred spot is a peepal tree.
Other nearby important spots includes DasaMahavidyaTemple, GangaTemple, Daksha Ghat and NileshwarMahadevTemple.

Sincerity of conviction and purity of motive will surely gain the day – Swami Vivekananda

Everything that has selfishness for its basis, competition for its right hand, and enjoyment as its goal, must die sooner or later.
What good is it if we acknowledge in our prayers that God is the Father of us all, and in our daily lives do not treat every man as our brother?
Sincerity of conviction and purity of motive will surely gain the day.
The cause of all miseries we have in the world is that men foolishly think pleasure to be the ideal to strive for.
