Located in the Dumka district of Jharkhand on the Deoghar-Dumka state highway, Basukinath is a popular place of worship for Hindus. The most famous attraction at Basukinath is undoubtedly the Basukinath Temple, and lakhs of pilgrims visit the temple each year from all parts of the country to worship Lord Shiva, who is the presiding deity. The crowd at magnificent the temple drastically increases in the month of Shravan, when not only local and national tourists but also international visitors visit.
It is widely believed that the Basukinath Temple is the court of Baba Bhole Nath. The temples of Shiv and Parvati are located just in front of each other in the Basukinath Temple. The gates of both of these temples open in the evening, and it is believed that Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati meet each other at this time. Thus, devotees are asked to move away from the front gates of the temple. Other small temples that are dedicated to different Gods and Goddesses can also be found inside the compound.
The Basukinath temple is undoubtedly the most famous temple dedicated to Lord Shiva that can be found in all of Bihar and Jharkhand, and the peaceful aura and tranquillity make devotees want to visit it over and over again to spend some time introspecting and contemplating peacefully.
