Bullet Baba Temple: ( Motorcycle Baba)

Bullet Baba temple

The mystery behind the Bullet Baba is one of the fascinating mysteries about these sacred places in India. It often tells stories of how Indians worship different things like trees, monkeys, stones, cows which is why them worshipping a motorcycle comes as a mystery, a motorcycle really!!

The Bullet Baba temple came into existence following Om Singh Rathore’s motorcycle accident at the same place where the temple stands, talk about creating a religious hotspot at your dying seconds. The police took the body and the motorcycle away from the accident scene and kept the bike at the police station. The next day the bike mysteriously found its way back to the accident scene. To ensure that it never happens again, the police took the bike, emptied its gas tank and chained it up but somehow the bike continued to find its way back to the accident scene. The bike had to be set there permanently because no matter what method they used to remove it from the spot it still found its way back. This led to the rise of the Bullet Baba temple because the motorcycle in question was a Royal Enfield Bullet. A concrete dias was put in place and a glass enclosure for the motorcycle. Each day hundreds of passersby pay homage to the motorcycle god who is believed to offer distressed travelers protection. These passersby leave liquor and flowers to solicit the deity’s blessing.  The temple has its own priest who conducts rituals and makes sure that the place remains in good shape. The tree which Rathore crashed still stands and has become part of the shrine. Who would have thought because of that fateful accident a temple would come into existence, guess accidents happen for a reason?

 

 Jwala Ji temple: (Burning Flame)

Jwala Ji temple-Mysterious temples in india

 

Many have the mythological stories connected to certain Mysterious temples in India which defy scientific logic. If mind blogging stories give you that wave of an adrenaline rush then perhaps knowing more about the Jwala ka temple seems like a wise idea. Jwala Ji temple is situated 34km south of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh. Temple is associated with the wife of Lord Shiva, Sati to whom the temple was dedicated. There are a lot of stories surrounding what remains a mystery to a lot of people around the world, the eternal flame that has continued to burn within the premises of the temple for 100 years without a source of fuel.

Fifty-one (51)! are the number of pieces that Sati’s body it believes the number of pieces to have been divided into and the tongue just fell over the place where the temple stands. So it makes sense that the flames resemble the tongue of Sati. Others believe her clothes which on fire, fell there, and the fire has never been put out. Some say they are seven to nine flames which resemble the seven divine sisters or the nine Durgas.

The birth of Sati came when the gods destroyed the demons which had wreaked havoc in the Himalaya Mountains. Sati grew up under the custodian of Prajapati Daksha and later became the wife of Lord Shiva. One is left to wonder how deep Sati’s love ran for her husband as she killed herself after her father insulted Lord Shiva. A lot of fury accompanied Lord Shiva’s reaction to the death of his wife. Lord Shiva stalked the three worlds while holding Sati’s body. The other gods trembled at his wrath and appealed to Lord Vishnu for help who then released a volley of arrows which struck Sati’s body and left it in pieces. These very pieces include the tongue which so has fallen at the spot where the unquenchable flame rages.

The goddess of this temple is made of black stone, has ten heads and fifty-four hands. The goddess has a variety of weapons in its hands. Its height is approximately 3 feet 8 inches and its width is approximately 2 feet and 5 inches. After the displacement of the original idol, a new one was established in the earliest times

The idols that are housed in this temple have tilted necks and the necks remain tilted even if one tries to change or reconstruct the idol. It is believed that during the liberation struggle in India, the freedom fighters used to derive inspiration from the goddess. The idol took a bullet to the neck when the freedom fighters got ambushed. You bet that Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is not the only one associated with the phrase “don’t play with the gods” as the phrase also applies to anyone and everyone who tries to tamper with the idol. Anyone who tries to replace the idol immediately falls sick and the only way to cure the ailment will be by returning the old idol to the temple. Wow! The goddess surely is not to be messed with, one can imagine if touching the idol does not spark the wrath of the goddess.

These are the Mysterious temples in India.
