I was in a dilemma as to visit this religious temple or not over the weekend. I was actually going through a rough phase in life and hence, mom insisted that I should visit it and offer prayers to the Gods & Goddesses and seek their blessings.
So, I finally left home with my Mom on the Friday evening from Patna to board the 7:45 pm train to Jasidih Station. The ticket cost was a mere Rs 80 pp/-. We reached Jasidih station at around 1:20 am and then hired an auto-ricksaw to reach the main gate (VIP gate) of the BABADHAM temple, at Deoghar which is situated in Jharkhand. The auto wala bhaiya charged us Rs 120/- but was really nice to safely drop us to the hotel we were residing in.
We had our hotel booked at a walk-able distance from the main gate of the temple. I was literally so exhausted that I had no strength to be able to open my eyes at 6 am early in the morning to do the darshan of Lord Shiva and Maata Parvati and other deities. My mom however, made sure that we got up by 6 am, took bath and without eating anything left for the temple.
It was a Saturday Morning and we entered the dwaar of Lord Shiva for his darshan. OMG! was the word that I uttered upon seeing the crowd. It was too crowded and people were falling and getting hurt and some could not even get the darshan of Lord Shiva.
However, I was more concerned about my mom than myself ki wo acche se ganga jal and belpatra chadha le shiv ji pe and hence, I was trying to make way for her and pushing people aside whosoever was coming in our way. Luckily, both me and my mom were able to do the darshan of Lord Shiva! Wo kehte hai na, Jab Bhagwan ke yaha se bulawa aata toh sab mangalmay hota and that he doesn't let you leave the place being disheartened.
After, the successful Darshan of Lord Shiva, we headed for our darshan of Maata Parvati which again was too crowded but we managed to do the darshan and pour the holy Gangajal over Maa Parvati.
Apart from the temple of Lord Shiva and Maata Parvati, there are 20 other temples and the darshan of all the other 20 deities too must be completed. However, there isn't any crowd there and you can easily do the darshans .
