Temple Dhoni Visits in Jharkhand - Mata Deori Temple - See Huge Rise in Devotees

Deori Temple at Tamar in Jharkhand is visited frequently by Indian Cricket Team captain M S Dhoni. After India’s World Cup victory, Deori Temple, located 60 km from Ranchi on the Ranchi-Jamshedpur National Highway,  is witnessing heavy rush. All this started after the rumor that Dhoni shaved his head after the world cup victory as an offering to Mata Deori, an avatar of Goddess Kali. Since 1998 Dhoni has been a regular visitor to the Deori Temple.

Mata Deori, an avatar of goddess Kali and the resident deity of Tamar’s Deori Mandir, is suddenly being swamped by the faithful from across the state. The temple, which till last week saw 200-300 visitors a day, is now the favourite daily pilgrimage of more than 2,000 people, courtesy Captain Courageous’ unwavering faith in the deity.
No one could say for certain when the temple was built.
According to a legend, an erstwhile king of Tamar saw a dream. The goddess told him that there was a temple in Deori, where she must be worshipped. Villagers, as directed by the king, cleared a forested patch to find a small temple with a stone statue of Kali. Ever since, the deity is worshipped here.
