Namah Shivaaya, I am Sadashiv, and here are few comments on the services rendered by prayagpandits on December 2021. I am from odisha, and I was searching for someone genuine who could guide us @ prayag through the intricacies of asthi visarjan of my father. To be frank i came across prayag pandits by word of mouth. First thing first, Trustworthiness. They are 110% trustworthy. I underwent a lot to reach prayag had accident on the way and the train was late by 8 hours, had to post pone the entire plan at 11th hour and believe me, the level of support I received from prayag pandits is indescribable. They specialize in all sorts of puja, you name them and their arrangement is unquestionable.

1. Naimisharanya

Apart from Patal Bhuvaneshwar, Naimisharanya is the only area where the pantheon of 33 crores Hindu Gods and Goddesses is supposed to live. For Hindus, Naimisharanya also has the title of being the first and most sacred of all Tirth Sthans. If you do penance here for 12 years, you will be immediately sent to Brahmaloka. Visiting Naimisharanya is the same as visiting all of the Tirth Sthans. This is the sole site where all essential Hindu sacred books reference it.

4. Shringverpur

Folklore has it that Rama, Sita, and Lakshmana crossed the Ganges at Shringaverpur on their trip to exile. On the river’s banks stands the settlement. The epic Ramayana makes reference to Shringverpur and describes it as the seat of Nishadraj, also known as the “King of Fishermen,” who rules over a kingdom. The Ramayan has the passage “Sita, Ram, and his brother came to Shringverpur.”

Before embarking on their exile into the forest, Lord Rama, his brother Lakshmana, and wife Sita spent one night in the village, according to the Ramayana. Nishadraj reportedly went to the location where Lord Rama was working to find a solution when the boatmen refused to let him cross the Ganges. If Lord Rama would permit them to wash their feet, he offered to make room for them. Rama agreed, and it is also mentioned that Nishadraj washed Rama’s feet with Ganges water and drank the water to demonstrate his devotion to him.

On the spot where Nishadraja Ram is alleged to have worshipped a Shivling, a modest temple has been constructed.

5. Prayagraj

The city of Prayagraj (formerly known as Allahabad) in Uttar Pradesh is a major Hindu pilgrimage destination, situated beside the sacred sangam, the confluence of three holy rivers – Ganga, Yamuna, and the mysterious Saraswati. Prayagraj is one of the four holy cities that host the Kumbh Mela, the world’s largest human gathering. It draws devotees, holy men, visitors, and photographers from all over the world. During the Maha Kumbh, which takes place every 12 years at sangam, and the Kumbh, which takes place every six years, millions of people flock to the city.

Lord Brahma, according to Hindu legend, picked an area of land on which to perform Prakrishta Yajna (a fire ritual). He chose the spot where the three holy rivers — the Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati – converged. As a result of the gods’ blessing, the city was given the name Teerthraj or Prayag.

The northern Vindhya range of mountains, which spans the states of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, is where Chitrakoot, also known as “the hill of many wonders,” is located. Here, Lord Rama spent a sizable portion of his exile. According to the epic Ramayana, Lord Rama’s brother Bharat visited him in Chitrakoot and urged him to go back to Ayodhya and take control of the kingdom. Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, the three ultimate Hindu deities, are thought to have manifested here. There are several temples and other religious buildings all throughout the place. Everything in Chitrakoot is connected to Lord Rama.

7. Varanasi

Varanasi is one of the country’s seven holiest towns and is said to be the home of Lord Shiva. Varanasi’s ambience has been layered with centuries of history, art, and culture, which is most brilliantly visible at its ghats (stepped banks of a river). The Ganges ghats are the focus of Varanasi’s spiritual landscape, attracting pilgrims in pursuit of sanctity and divine providence. The ghats are the scene of time-honoured rites that are still being conducted today, from the famed Ganga aarti (fire ceremony) to cremation ceremonies.

According to legend, Lord Shiva brought the heavenly Ganga to earth, which is why the river is revered. Thousands of devotees come from all across the nation to bathe in its waters, believing that a dip in the sacred Ganges can cleanse them of one of their sins. It is also thought that people who are cremated here get moksha (salvation). Many people consider the sacred Kashi Yatra (pilgrimage to Kashi, as Varanasi was once known) to be one of the most significant ceremonies they will ever perform.

8. Buxar

Since the time of the epics, Buxar has gained attention for being the residence of notable saints, a battleground for demons and gods according to the Puranas, and a battleground for nationalists and invaders in more recent history. Legend has it that the eighty thousand saints and family guru of Lord Rama, Sage Vishwamitra, lived in a sacred ashram on the banks of the holy Ganges, which is located inside the present-day District Buxar. The demons agitated him during the yagna (sacrificial offering). 

According to legend, the famous Rakshasi (demoness) Tadika was killed by Lord Rama in the area that is now Buxar town. On top of that, Lord Rama and his younger brother Laxman received their education in Buxar. Additionally, it is believed that Ahilya, the wife of Gautam Rishi, transformed her human body from one made of stone and attained redemption with just a touch of Lord Rama’s feet. Currently known as Ahirauli, this location is six kilometres from the town of Buxar. Nowadays, tourists visit the Kanwaldah Pokhara, also known as VyaghraSar.

9. Janakpur

The Hindu goddess Sita was born in the city of Janakpur, which is located 135 kilometres (84 miles) southeast of Kathmandu. It is also the location of Sita’s marriage to Lord Rama.

The ancient Janakpur was said to have been named after King Janak of the Mithila kingdom in the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. Sita was born in a field rut that Janak discovered, and he raised her as his own daughter. When Sita (also known as Janaki) was around sixteen years old, the king made the announcement that whomever could string Shiva’s miraculous bow would be permitted to marry her. The prince of Ayodhya, Lord Rama, was the only royal suitor who was successful despite numerous attempts. In addition to stringing the bow, he also split it in half. As a result, Sita’s hand was gained by Lord Rama.

Places to Visit-

10. Gaya

Gaya, Bihar, is situated along the banks of the sacred Falgu river and is steeped in spirituality and quiet. It is a well-known Hindu pilgrimage destination where visitors can walk in Lord Rama’s footsteps. Gaya’s crowning attraction is the famed Vishnupad Temple, which is surrounded by a number of other spiritual monuments. The majority of these spiritual locations are steeped in Ramayana legends and stories. Lord Rama is said to have offered ‘pinda-daan’ (offerings to ancestors to ensure their peace) at the famous Ramshila Hill, and many pilgrims travel long distances to do so. Another must-see attraction is the Akshay Vat, which is thought to be the world’s oldest standing tree!

Gaya is bordered by hills named Mangala-Gauri, Shringa-sthan, Ram-shila, and Brahmayoni, and is about 100 kilometres from the state capital Patna. The city’s name comes from a tale about the demon Gayasur, who was destroyed by Lord Vishnu. It was once part of the Magadh empire (684-320 BC). Because of the great number of Jain temples in Gaya, it is also important to followers of Jainism.
