Baidyanath Dham Mandir at Deoghar in Jharkhand – Baba Baidyanath Shiva Temple at Deoghar in Jharkhand

One of the twelve Jyotirlinga temples dedicated to Shiva, Baidyanath Dham Mandir at Deoghar in Jharkhand is the only place where Shiva is worshipped as Manokamana Linga and Aughara Dani. Baba Baidyanath at the Shiva Temple in Deoghar grants all wishes of his devotees. As per Padma Puran and Shiva Mahapuran, Ravana performed intense penance to please. Shiva was pleased with the devotion of Ravana and appeared before him. Ravana asked Shiva to the ever present in his kingdom. To fulfill the wish of his devotee, Shiva gave Ravana one of the Jyotirlinga. But Shiva put the condition that the Shivling should not be kept down. Shiva who knew about the adharmic intentions of Ravana asked Varuna to sit inside the stomach of the demon king. When Ravana reached Deoghar, Varuna played his part and caused a stomach upset. Ravana had to relieve himself and so he gave the Shivling to a Sadhu, Bhagvan Srihari Vishnu in disguise. Bhagvan Vishnu then esbalished the Shivling at Deogha
