Naulakha Mandir History and Timings in Deoghar Jharkhand
Naulakha Mandir in Deoghar Jharkhand
Rani Charushila Devi built the Noulakha temple. She was the queen of Pathuriya Ghat’s Jorabagan in Kolkata and was a widow at an early age. After this, she accepts the discipleship of Balananda Brahmachari.
History of Naulakha Mandir Deoghar
The temple is like the Ramakrishna temple in Belur. Radha-Krishna, Gopal, and Swami Balananda Brahmachari idols are inside the temple. The whole temple was built with marble stone.
At the entrance of the Mandir, Charushila Devi’s sculpture is situated. The statue was made of white marble. Rani Charushila Devi spent 9 lakh rupees to build this temple in 1940. Hence, the name of the temple is Naulakha Mandir. The height of the Naulakha temple is 146 feet.
She belonged to the royal family of Paturia Ghat in Kolkata. Unfortunately, her husband, Akshay Ghosh, and son, Jitendra Chandra Ghosh, died. She became detached from her family. She came to Karnibad in Deoghar and stayed at the ashram of Balananda Brahmachari.
Charushila Devi established the temple in his direction. After a few months, Sri Kali Das Ram, a renowned engineer from West Bengal, was a Swami Balananda Brahmachari disciple. Charushila Devi gave him the responsibility of temple-making.
The area is large, and you can stay inside the temple as you wish. However, it is a visitable destination in Deoghar sightseeing.
Please Note –
1) Photography and Videography are not allowed insight into the temple.
2) There is no entry fee.
