    History of Temple:
    1. This is very SACRED place. When Rama was in aranyavasa, he stayed here for some time and established the ‘Shiva Lingam’.
    2. Many saints and spiritual persons will be sitting and will be dhyana for years. As it s very powerful, they sit and do their puja. Because of this, when you go there feel very happy and peaceful. Where it is difficult to define the ‘state’ for a common man.
