Ajgaivinath Temple, Bhagalpur Overview

Ajgaivinath Temple, located in Sultanganj, is one of the most famous Hindu Temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. The Idol in the main temple of Ajgaibnath is believed to be Swayambhu (Self-manifester). The temple has been associated with Muni Jahnu, as a belief says that the Idol in the Ajgaivinath Temple protruded in Jahnu Muni’s ashram. There is a story which says that when Muni Jahnu was meditating in his ashram, the Ganges on her way to the ocean disturbed Jahnu with the ripples of her waves. Muni Jahnu is believed to have swallowed the whole river, and Muni Bhagirath saved the Ganges by making an incision on Jahnu’s thighs to make way for the Ganges. Thus river Ganges received the name Jahnavi.
