Deoghar tour – a perfect weekend gateway to enjoy Hills, Pilgrimage and legends

It was a Sunday morning in the month of January 2014; I was enjoying a cup of tea with newspaper at my hand. Last year I saw Chander Pahar movie at INOX, Kolkata. The scenes of jungle travel, expedition, wandering beasts are still afresh in my mind. I suddenly spotted Lattu pahar of Simultala in News papers. It’s close to Deoghar. We are desperately looking for 2-3 days break at hilly place very close to Kolkata. I heard knocking sounds at the door, my friend Dhukuda came in and joined the tea party.  He suggested to go to Deoghar . It’s a perfect place to enjoy pilgrimage at Baidyanath Dham and Satsang Ashram and at the same time enjoy hilly rides across Trikut Pahar , Tapovan . You can enjoy jungle ride (to be precise: riding through jungle like bushes) outside Deoghar town.

So we got ready to set out for Deoghar Travel:

Before Deoghar tour, I had a notion that it’s a place famous only because of Satsang Ashram ( Satsang deoghar)  , but this is not true . Main traction of this place is Baidyanath Dham mandir. Deoghar is famous for the Baidyanath (Shiva) Jyotirlingam temple that local people call Kamnalingam Temple.

Why Deoghar is famous and why you should go there?

Deoghar (also called Baidyanath Dham) is located in Jharkhand and it’s 310 km away from Kolkata and famous for most revered Jyotirlingams .

1. Deoghar is very close to kolkata and well connected via roads and rails

2. It has very good pilgrimage environment. In fact the holy environments at Baidyanath Dham and Satsang deoghar will make your mind fresh.

3. Surrounding landscape is dotted with small hillocks and forest

4. Very good weather (esp. November to February) and you can get many options for hotels and sightseeing.

Before coming here, I was searching for Deoghar blog, but I could not locate any suitable resources except some information from wiki.

So this’s my small initiative to share my experience…

Deoghar tour      

We have planned to travel Deoghar by train. There are many trains from Kolkata crossing Jashidi junction, the nearest railway junction from Deoghar .

If you plan to travel by train from any major railway stations in India, then you have book train reservation up to nearest big junction Jashidi (Jashidi Station Code – JSME).  From Jashidi you can reach Deoghar by auto Rikshaw or private car. Deoghar is just 6 km from Jashidi and well connected by very good road and rail. There is some shuttle train service between Jashidi and Baidyanath Dham (Deoghar) station, but those very less frequent. So it’s better to go by Auto or Car.

Here are few train information from Kolkata (Howrah /Sealdha )  .

Our journey to Deoghar .

We have booked our ticket in Akal Takht Express and departure time is 7:40 am from Sealdah , but our train started late by 3 hours .

Our journey was smooth and we reached Jashidi around 4: 45 pm. Then we took footbridge to reach platform No 1 and finally took share Auto for Deoghar.

From Jashidi you can take either auto or private car to reach Deoghar . Since Deoghar is 6 km from Jashidi , it’s better to take auto . We took shared auto cost Rs. 10 per head. Private auto charge you around Rs 100. (While coming to Jashidi , we reserved Auto for RS 100 ) .

We reached Tower chowk at Baidyanath Dham in 25 min and informed our auto driver to show few good Deoghar hotels.

Where to look for hotel in Deoghar?

We had a list of many Deoghar hotels from wiki travel. So we checked few hotels by that list at Tower chowk area. We first went to Hotel Mahadev, it’s an expensive hotel, they charges above RS 2400 for double bed hotel room. Then we checked few more good hotels along Deoghar station road. Finally we checked in Hotel New Grand Hotel. This is a very good, neat and clean hotel. It had both ac and non sc rooms. It being a clod season, we took non ac room at Rs 800. (prices are seasonal in nature )

Deoghar hotels booking tips:

Along the Deoghar stations road and Tower chowk area, you get at least 20 -30 good hotels. I have found many budget and luxury class hotels there and room fares ranges from 400 – 2000. If you come here in December or January except holidays, then you check 2 -3 hotels and get the best deals.

Day 1 travel plan:

Earlier we had a plan to visit Satsang Ashram in the evening. But we reached Deoghar late at 5 pm. So after taking bath at hotel, we went for walking in Tower chowk area . We tested local snacks esp. egg rolls, Jharkhand’s special fried chops and super special malai tea . If you are in Deoghar, you should try malai tea at Tower chowk area.

After some brisk walk, we finished our dinner and visited nearby Hanuman temple. We finally came back hotel and went to bed for next day sightseeing.

Day 2 travel: Deoghar sightseeing

Today is sightseeing day (9TH January 2014). We have booked a car for sightseeing.

1. Satsang Ashram: this is our first location. It’s 4 km off from tower chowk. This is a very nice place where you can spend 1-2 hours. We have seen prayer house, museum. Inside museum you can see exclusive collection of items used by Sri Sri Thakur Anukulachandra . There is a small zoo inside. We have found Kids Park and visited Samadhi place of Sri Sri Thakur.

From our experience, you can plan 1-2 Hours here. This is really a very nice place to enjoy transcendental bliss and peace.

2. Nava Durga mandir

Nava Durga mandir

It’s close to Satsang Ashram .it’s a small Mandir and has very holy environment . You can spend maximum 15 min here and keep some time for some other good spots.

3. Naulakha Mandir

This is an old temple locate outside Deoghar . You can locate this big and old temple on the way to Topovan . It looks lonely and sad as if waiting for exit from history . Lack of maintenance puts patched over its historic glamour. We spend about 20 minutes there. We located a Narmada Kunda just opposite of the temple. Pujaris are staying in quarters close to that Kunda . We spent some time there and move to our next spot.

4. Prabhu Jagadbandhu Ashrama – This is located 4 km from Deoghar , comes on the way to Tapovan, just close to near Charki Pahari crossing.

We really enjoyed our half an hour stay in a cool, pristine environment. You can get peace while watching beautiful stone crafted Temple and spending time with monks and other ashramiks.

This is a good place for mental peace and photography is strictly prohibited.  We managed took photos from outside campus.

5. Tapovan

This is the 3rd best spot. You can again plan 1-2 hrs tour here. : It is located 10 km from Deoghar and has a Shiva temple , called Taponath Mahadeva .

Tapovan - legends talks here through mandir , hill and  local peopple

Tapovan – legends talks here through mandir , hill and local peopple

We are at Tapovan

We are at Tapovan

Topovan has very rich story. So we have taken a guide. There are many places to see. It has dark cave where Ravana performed siddhi to satisfy Shiva so that he could take the lingam to Lanka. Hanuman had come here and broken the Tapashya of Ravana . Here Mahavir Hanuman opened the rocks and showed his statues. But these are all legend.

We have seen a temple with Shiva lingam along our journey to Hilltop, local said it’s emerged on its own.

Balanand Brahmachari used to meditate here. On the top of hill, we have seen his meditation room and a small cave where he kept a tiger. After 12 years of sadhana , he got blessing of God and Siddhi (success through penance) .

At Topovan , Beware of monkeys, you should take a local fruits packet and give it to Monkeys otherwise they will chase you. It looks monkeys there are trained by local fruits sellers. We took one packet for Rs 10 and gave it to monkey. And they were happy and allowed us to see Topovan pahar .

Our guide explained us nicely all legends. I do not know whether they are true.  But it suits that environment.  I have given him 30 % bonus. Guide price various from Rs 80 to 100. If you love history, then it’s worth to spend money to take a guide.

6. Trikut Pahar.

After Tapovan , we started for Trikut Pahar . Trikut Pahar situated about 22 km from Deoghar . You can take main road from Deoghar to reach this place.

On the way to Trikut Pahar from Tapavon

On the way to Trikut Pahar from Tapavon

But we have taken a road directly from Tapovan to Trikut pahar .This was an awesome journey. If you like to enjoy journey through small forests and village type environment, then take this route. On the way, we have seen solar plant and driver informed this is the main source of electricity in this area.

Solar plant - main source of electricity near Tapovan

After little km drive, we have seen a small village and local boys are looking at us. Suddenly we saw our road is closed ahead because of road repair work. Driver told us not be worry. He then took a jungle path, it wad muddy path. We could see the bushes around. It looks like a mini jungle journey. Driver is a local people, so he knew the road. After 1-2 km ride through jungles, we finally took the main village road to Trikut . It was really a good journey through jungle and local village.

This village road finally took to us to Main road connecting Deoghar to Trikut Pahar . Then we saw Trikut pahar from few km distances. Roadside milestones shows it is 4 km away . Driver warned us about local guide. While taking turn from Main road toward Trikut pahar road, a guide boarded our car from main junction with a hope that we could take his service.

Trikut Pahar - on the way to pahar

Trikut Pahar – on the way to pahar

We reached Trikut pahar at 1:30 PM . It was awesome view.  We immediately went to ropeway. Each ticket cost us Rs 80 for 1 hour stay at the hill top. It was 7 min ropeway journey to the hill top and we have taken many Trikut Pahar photos.

Ropeway ride to Trikut Pahar

Ropeway ride to Trikut Pahar

When we came out from ropeway on the hilltop, we got confused as  there is  further information  . Only few local youth were posing as the guides chasing us to subscribe their services.

Nothing solid there to explore on the hill top. Ropeway Company gave us only 1 hr to spend time there. They charge us only to take to hill top. But not a single guidance or boards are there to guide tourists. Local youths misguided us. We finally took road to the downward right based on our judgment. We see awesome views of three peaks of Trikut Hill. Some monkeys were looking at us with a surprise and a baby money pulled my trousers (very politely), but they are good than local youths ( guides) .

Awesome views of Trikut Pahar from ropeway

While coming to ropeway terminus for return journey, we notices that we should have taken left and took upslope path. As we could have seen better views there.

What I feel as a tourist, government or ropeway company should put information boards at the hill top. If you charge Rs for guide, it’s ok. You can club it with ticket so that tourist can get better services. You can employ local youth on contract and performance basis.

You can spend 1 -2 hours at this place. It was 2: 30 pm when we finished our trip.

Then we headed for lunch. Driver took us to a very good Maa Durga Dhava. It offers very good foods at competitive price and serve foods in a small hut type lunch cabin. You can see the Trikut pahar on the back.

7. Ramakrishna Mission

Our next destination was Ramakrishna Mission. It remains open between 9 AM to 11 AM and 3 – 5 PM every day except Monday. Its academic environment, green campus, great monument made us spells bounds. The best part was to visit museum. You should not miss it. You may be on a hectic sightseeing tour; still you must visit this place. It shows different cultures, old architecture, idols from 600 AD, and many glories memories of mission. It’s really worth to spend 15 min inside. Then you see a small zoo inside.

8. Nandan Pahar:

This was our last spot. It’s a small hill located 3 Km from Deoghar. If you are travelling with kids, then you can keep at least 45 min for this place. It’s  a small hillock and there is a small park on the hill top . An entry fee is Rs 5 per head. You can find boot house, ghost house and toy train  taking you on a ride round the hill. We also enjoyed ride on a jumping frog. There is a boating facility in downhill lake.

Day 3 Travel: Visit to Baidyanath Dham Mandir

As we had reached late at Deoghar on the first day, we had planned another long trip to Simultala on day 3. We planned to visit Lattu Pahar . But local people informed it’s not safe to go there in a single family.  So we canceled this trip.

Baidyanath Dham  - main Shive mandir

Baidyanath Dham – main Shive mandir

No problem! We have kept sufficient of time for the best spot of Deoghar travel  : Baidyanath Dham . It’s very close to tower chowck and located about 300 meter from our hotel. So we reached there on foot. We took panda to give Puja to Shiva temple.

Baidyanath Dham  - after puja with my daughters

Baidyanath Dham – after puja with my daughters

Legend says Ravana kept Shiva lingam here while taking it Lanka. Then lingam got fixed to ground. Ravana got angry as he couldn’t take it Lanka. He punched hard on the lingam so that it should go inside to Patal . Because of that punching pressure , Shiva lingam got flattened . We have given Puja in the main Shiva temple. We have touched that lingam and offered our Puja. We also offered Puja to Maa Durga ( Parbati Temple ) just opposite to Shiva temple . Pandas were very cooperative; they guided us all the way. We have spent 2 hours there.

2. Enjoyed special foods at Deoghar! 

If you are at Deoghar, you should miss the following foods:

A . Malai tea- you shouldn’t miss it. They give milk tea and put cream on it. You can have good Malai tea near Tower chowck. I am fond of tea . So I took 2 – 3 samples from various tea stall. The best one was from a tea stall neat Baidyanath Dham station. They put lots of cream on tea

Malai tea

B. Peda- you can get it from many stalls near Baidyanath Dham Mandir . We purchased 1 kg Peda from a stall. While purchasing peda, we talked local shop owner, he informed many Bengali were there in Deoghar and lots of them  now moved out of Deoghar. We also saw how pedas were made.

C. Tilkut- you can get this from many local sweet stalls on the way to Baidyanath Dham road . It’s a good experience to see how local people make tilkut  We took  2 packet after a test  trial at local shop .

3. Eating out at Deoghar

There are many restaurants near tower chowk in Deoghar .  The best vegetarian restaurant is hotel Neelkomal . It serves very tasty food and at reasonable prices. I really enjoyed their foods. There are few Bengali restaurants and many non -veg restaurant.  We have tasted Chinese foods from our hotel restaurants. It’s a bit expensive but good in taste.

3. Best time to travel to Deoghar : Deoghar train timings

Best time is: December- January, very cool weather. (You can also plan your journey in between September to February

You can enjoy both foods and sightseeing.

Time to avoid this place: If you plan to come to Deoghar just for travel , then better to avoid Sawan Mahina (June- July  ) . Because during this time , millions of devotees come to Deoghar for Baba Baidyanath Dham Darshan. In fact, this is summer season. So it is better not to come this time for Deoghar tour .

Have I missed anything this time?

I had a plan to visit Simultala tour, especially planning to visit Lattu pshar and few other places. I was late to book the car and we were a single family. This was a jungle path and very remote area. So we canceled the trip. But next time I will try this spot.

Our three days tour was over on 10Th January 2014. On 11th January 2014 we took Jan Shatabdi exp from Jasidih for Howrah.

Carrying memories of Deoghar

Carrying memories of Deoghar

I am finishing this blog while travelling by this train. Our train is now reaching Madhupur . I have placed an order for a cup of tea. I look  through the  window, vast landscape of Jharkhand is passing by, distant hillocks are waving their heads, telling us goodbye. I take 3 days’ beautiful memories in Deoghar with me for ever…

    • Hi Dipayan, We book car from hotel. Or near tower chowck in Deoghar, you can find many taxi or cab are standing there for hire. You talk to 2-3 driver there to get feel of actual price in this season. It’s always good to check price from 2-3 sources. You can can many travel booking offices there. I urge you to check with cabs near taxi stand. Hope this helps. Thanks,

    The details of the tour are excellent. Its just like reading a travel magazine. We had a small plot in Deoghar, but I will not be able to describe as relevant as you did. Thks

  34. Very nice and brief description with relevant pictures Mr Roy as it reflects your touring sense to a great extent and I think it will be quite helpful for us as we may go deoghar at the end of this jan’17. Thanks for sharing your experience

  35. Excellent narration and throwed light to the proposed visitors like me. Good job. We plan to go in May fist week sir. Thanks a lot.

    • Thanks Challa for your view. Wish you happy stay during that time.

      • Challa Sundara Rao

        Sir, it would be much helpful to the tourists if an attempt is made by you, covering other places, statewise. If possible suggesting economic way to cover the places would be much helpful to the major sect of tourists. Thank you.

      • Thanks Mr Rao,

        For sharing your suggestion. However, I am an occasional traveler. I managed to get limited time for leasure travel. But, wherever I go I try to share my experience with my friends. Recently I have written travel blog about Sunderban and Ranchi.

        Hope to see you again on my blog.

        Thanks,
        Gobinda

  36. Amazing Work Gobinda, I am from Deoghar itself but could not have done a better work. I am planning to set up a premier guest house at Satsang. Will organise a Long weekend trip for visitors with Elite reasonable quality fooding and lodging facilities.

    Once again Keep visiting and keep writing…

    • Thank you Mr Milton for your encouraging note. Deoghar is indeed a nice place. I wish I should visit again there.

      All the best for your initiative for helping tourists in Deoghar.

      Thanks

  37. Kashinath Mukhopadhyay

    Dear Gobinda

    Excellent description of Babadham tour. I am planning to visit March end . How will be that time. Also if you can suggest best way to offer puja to Babadham i.e Early morning or evening , Temple opening time , Self Puja or through Panda’s , Please explain the best easy way to offer Puja. I am visiting with my old age Mother .

    Regards

    Kashinath Mukhopadhyay

    • Dear Mr. Kashinath,

      Thanks for raising that question. In fact, we had same question before we visited the temple. I am trying to answer your questions based on my experience

      1) We visited January first week, it’s always a best time to visit Deoghar. However, I hope march end would not be too hot there. Better to avoid place in summer if you go for touring purpose.

      2) For puja, I feel morning would be good. We went there for puja around 8 AM morning.

      3) Regarding Puja mode: Very difficult questions. If you go without panda for the first time, you would be find difficult to enter main mandir, and nearby temples.

      Here is our experience, we keep our belonging in a peda shop. Then some panda approached us and he promised he would tale only INR 50 for puja. But , when we entered the temple premise, we handed us to another Panda. Later, I realized first panda was acting like collecting agent. Now we are at the hand of main Panda. We again bargained and paid him INR 150. But, he was very helpful. We took us for offering puja.

      In my experience, you can offer self puja, if you already visited the place, else try the way I did,
      But overall experience was really good.

      Hope this will help.

      Let me know when you back from trip.

      Thanks ,
      Gobinda

  38. Awesome coverage👌👍

    Thank you for giving us the full details of the tour. I am fan of your blog and you always give the right and real information to us. We are three friend with our families are planned to visit Deoghar in Durga Puja. Is there any problem to visit at this time? What is the charge of the car in one day sightseeing? Thank you again..
    Utpal Nag

    • Hi Utpal,

      Thanks for your mail. I feel you can enjoy your vacation there during Durga Puja. You can visit Deoghar any time except Summer. For one day sight seeing Deoghar, you can check price from cars parked near Tower Chowck. Price depends on whether you plan your city tour (about 20 Km radius) or outside Deoghar Tour.

      Last time , I tried to vsit Shimultala., It is about 40 km from Deoghar, Since we are single family, our people there advised not to go there. If you are visiting there with 2-3 families . You can plan your trip, I really missed that trip.

      Let me know your experience when you back from Deoghar tour.
      Thanks,
      Gobinda Roy

  43. Hello Sir,
    very informative blog. Can you please send ur contact number at arnab1111@gmail.com? it will be very help ful for me. As I am going to deoghar on 1st October 2017.

  44. Mr.GobindaRoy first of all many thanks to write such a good description for the entire trip of Deoghar. Really outstanding. We are going there on 28th Sep’17 & returning on 2nd Oct. I am following your blog & planing accordingly. But one question, whether I can get Hotel availability easily that time? because I always prefer spot room choosing instead of booking in online. Waiting for your response. Thanks again……

    • Hi Manu,

      The time you mentioned is a peak season, as many Bengali tourists will flock to Deoghar during puja vacation. If there is no such rush, then you would find at least 30+ hotels in Deoghar area. In fact, we we went there, that was year ending (25Th December – to 2 January). Still, we checked 2-3 hotels and finally selected hotel based on quality and price.

      When you reach Deoghar, you can ask your cab to take to hotels near Tower Chowck. Near Tower chowck, you find many hotels. I hope you book hotel there on the spot. Thanks
