Shiv Temple (Bagot)
: 25 Kms from Mahendragarh (Haryana).
Temple Dedicated To
: Lord Shiva
: Shiv Ratri
It is religiously a very important place and is situated at a distance of 25 kilometers from Mahendragarh. There is a famous Shiva temple here. A big fair is held on the eve of Shiva-Ratri in the month of Sawan. A large number of people come here from far and wide to worship the idol of Lord Shiva.
As per their vows taken earlier and their desires having been fulfilled, the devotees go to Haridwar a week before the fair to bring Ganga water in two small pitchers known as Kawars. They travel on foot during the whole return journey from Haridwar to Bagot. They do not place these kawars on the earth, as is believed that by doing so the sacred water contained therein will become impure.
On reaching Bagot, they sprinkle Ganga water over the stone idol of Shiva and offer worship throughout the day by singing hymns and bhajans in his eulogy.
