Worshipping Shakti or Power matters a lot in the culture of India, we can observe it in diverse forms with different interpretations since time immemorial. An historic temple on the Mundeshwari Hills in Kaimur of Bihar has great significance in the culture of worshipping Shakti.
Devi Mundeshwari and four-faced Shiva linga are the main deities at the temple
Exactly located at Kaura, the Mundeshwari Devi Temple is known for its worshipping culture of Lord Shiva and Shakti. Indologists claim that Mudeshwari Temple is the oldest functional Hindu temple in the world as the dating of the temple can be traced back to 108 AD.
For all who visit this historical monument of ancient India, Mundeshwari Devi is a great source of energy, helping the devotees to unleash their power within. As Sanathan Dharma is all about energy, consolidation of energy for great causes is crucial for a human being to survive. That’s all what the people try to get from their favourite deity here.
Because of its significance in the history of Bharat, the Mundeshwari temple has been under the protection of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) since 1915.
Devi Mundeshwari and four-faced Shiva linga are the main deities at the temple. Two stone vessels with unusual design attract the devotees more.

The sentiments of Ayyappa devotees cannot be ignored: RSS
The RSS makes it clear that the sentiments of the Ayyappa devotees cannot be ignored while considering the judgement on Sabarimala
The devotees of Swami Ayyappa have just started an unprecedented movement in the history of Kerala to save the prestigious Sabarimala temple in the backdrop of Supreme Court judgement that permits women of all age groups to worship at the temple. As the movement against the judgement is gaining momentum, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has made it stand clear on the issue.
RSS, in a statement, said that it is an issue of a local temple tradition and faith to which sentiments of millions of devotees are attached. “The sentiments of the Ayyappa devotees cannot be ignored while considering the judgement,” said the statement issued by RSS Sarkaryavah Suresh (Bhayya ji) Joshi Wednesday.
The Sangh also emphasized the point of honouring Supreme Court. “While respecting the varied temple traditions followed by devotees, we need to also honour the Supreme Court.”
The RSS has criticized the Kerala government for their plans to implement the judgement with immediate effect without considering the sentiments of devotees.
According to the RSS, all the stakeholders should come together and address the issue in a way that reflects the concerns of devotees on their right to worship.
