Akhand Jyoti Burning for 108 Years at Akhand Vasini Mandir in Patna

The Tiwari family residing at the road off Golghar in Patna has been keeping an Akhand Jyoti burning for 108 years at their private temple - Akhand Vasini Mandir. The tradition was started by Vishwanath Tiwari in the beginning of the 20th century and the tradition is still continued by the family.

Although a private temple, thousands of devotees visit the shrine during Navratras to have a darshan of the Akhand Jyoti.

The family religiously puts ghee in Akhand Jyoti lamp. Another lamp is also continuously burning for several years and the medium used is pure mustard oil.

Devotees are welcomed on all days of the year.
