नौलखा मंदिर, देवघर (Navlakha Temple) – Deoghar

2 kms from Deoghar, there are temples of Radha And Krishna here.This Balanand Brahamchari Ashram is a fine architectural monument for religious purposes. The construction was completed in the year 1940 under the patronage and watchful supervision of Rani Charushila Ghosh of the Pathuria Ghat Royal Family, Kolkata.

It is situated 1.5 k.m. away from Baba Baidyanath Temple. It is a nice visiting spot. This temple looks like the temple of Ramakrishna in Belur. Inside it there are idols of Radha – Krishna. Its height is 146 feet. The amount spent in construction of the temple was about Rupees Nine lakhs (9 lakhs). This amount was donated entirely by Queen Charushila Devi. At the early age she lost her husband Akshay Ghosh and son Jatindra Ghosh. Grieved by the deaths, she left her home and constructed the temple on the advice of Balananda Brahmachari, a saint whose idol is also enshrined in the temple.

Baidyanath – Dham tour would be incomplete without it. Basically it is a Radha-Krishna’s Jugal Temple, but famous as “Naulakha Temple” for its construction cost (i.e. Nine Lakhs). The idol of “Balananda Bramhachari” is also venerated here.

This temple is a magnificent illustration of traditional Indian art and architecture, now on the verge of devastation due to lack of appropriate conservation. It seems that Central or State Government, or local administration would be inattentive regarding this matter. More travelers can be captivated by revamping the adjacent area. At present this temple under the control of “Kolkata High Court”.

Visit of this temple is totally hassle free. No one disturbs you.
