Augarnath Temple

Augarnath Mandir

The temple of Baba Augarnath Temple is located in the cantonment area in the Meerut metropolis of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. This temple is called Siddha Kshetra.

It is believed that the Shivalinga in this temple is Swayambhu. That is, this Shivling itself has come out of the earth. Only then is it a true fruit. Along with fulfilling the wishes of the devotees in the form of Shuddhadani in the form of Shiva, they give peace messages. Along with this, we also publish the revolution in the form of Nataraja. Since Lord Shiva is present here in the form, it is called Augarnath Temple. By the way, it is also called Kali Paltan Temple.

The establishment

No definite time of the establishment of this temple is known, but according to Janashruti, it existed before the first Indian freedom struggle as a sacred place of worship between the city and the surrounding people. The history of the Veer Marathas mentions the victory journeys of many Peshwas who worshiped Lord Shankar here. This temple has a special contribution to the first Indian freedom struggle of 1857.
