 Day 2 - The 2nd day should be the ideal time for starting your trip through Baidyanath Dham, barely 2 km away from the town of Deoghar.
Day 3 - This day should ideally be reserved for a rest. However, if you wish to have an insight of the whole town, you can visit the Naulakha Mandir for the start. Thereon, you can proceed for a trekking spree to the Trikuta Parvat, or if you prefer to do some soul searching and religious study, go for Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapeeth.
