Ganga Maiya Temple

#4 of 10 things to do in Bhilai

This legendary temple is situated about 60 kms from Bhilai, and is essentially in Jhalmala. It has a story attached to it which says that a local fisherman on work had found out the temple's deity in his net but instead of recovering it, he let it go back into the water. Next, a few days later a resident of the same village as the fisherman's had a dream about the deity who instructed him to go retrieve the idol. He even instructed him to place it in a hut nearby. Upon knowing all of this Bikram Chandra Tiwari who was a great force in the village built a temple for the deity, and since then the temple has been worshipped religiously.
