One of the centres of attraction of Muzaffarpur is Baba Garibnath Temple which resides in the heart of the city. The temple is home to the Shivling of Lord Shiva as Baba Gareebnath. Legend has it that the Shivaling was acquired from the Peepal Tree where the Temple now stands. The man who cut down the tree witnessed blood oozing out of the tree, revealing the Shivling which compelled him to build the shrine that now attracts a large number of devotees. Baba Gareebnath Temple is especially crowded during the holy month of Shravan.
