Deoghar, popularly renowned as Baidyanath Dham, is considered as the house of gods and goddesses. Deoghar is perfectly located in the Santhal Parganas of the state Jharkhand. Deoghar is blessed with the presence of one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples known as Temple of Baba Baidyanath. This temple is an ancient temple and is a famous Hindu religious destination.
Ravana did his best to uproot the lingam but beyond breaking the tip he was unsuccessful. He finally prostrated before the invincible lingam, which has ever since remained rooted at Deogarh. In deep remorse, Ravana used to come to this place everday and worship the lingam by offering water from the Ganges.
It is also believed that the Baidyanath (Vaidyanath) Jyotirlingam in Deogarh is associated with legendary stories of Ravana and Lord Shiva. It was at this place Ravana cut off his nine heads to repent and Lord Shiva blessed him by joining back all his heads like a Vaidya. The temple is very famous with thousands of devotees offer their prayers with great devotion and reverence. The Shivalinga here is adorned majestically with jewels and pearls. One can get all kinds of prosperity and long life by praying in this holy place.
Historically the temple is dated to 1596 when a hunter by the name of Baiju, discovered the lost lingam. Since then it came to be known as Baidyanath and people also call it Kamma Lingam - the desire fulfilling lingam.Kamana Ling is located about 1 KM from the railway station.
