Frog Temple - Medhak Mandir, Oel, Lakhimpur, Uttar Pradesh
(2/2 Portrait mode pictures)
Navneel Neeraj wrote :
The unique Frog Temple lies at Oel town, 12 kilometres from Lakhimpur on the route from Lakhimpur to Sitapur. It is the only one of its kind in India based on Manduk Tantra. It was built by the former king of Oel State (Lakhimpur Kheri district) between 1860 and 1870. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva.
This temple is built at the back of a large frog. The Temple is constructed within an octagonal lotus. The Shivling installed in the temple was brought from the Banasur Prati Narmdeshwar Narmada Kund. The main gate of the temple opens in the east and another gate is in the south. The architecture of this temple is based on Tantra Vidya.
According to Tantra (Tantric Custom), frog is a symbol of prosperity, luck and fertility. Hence, there is a strong belief among the followers. This unique Frog Temple holds 200-years old history and is situated in the town of Oel.

The 3 river island temple of Kahalgaon, Bhagalpur, Bihar

When Ganga flows down from the tall Himalayas, there is no such place other than Rishikesh & Haridwar which gives it a rocky river bank.
Ganga at kahalgaon flows Uttarwahini (towards north) after Varanashi.
This place is a picture-square & gives a mesmerising experience ❤️

The Glorified New You!
The heart of the Gospel is that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and rose from the dead on the third day (see 1 Corinthians 15:1-6). My point is that Jesus’ appearing to take us home to heaven is the future tense of the Gospel; it’s the beginning of the eternal life that Jesus promises to those who put their faith in Him (see 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10; 4:13-18).
I love the words of 1 John 3:1-3 regarding our hope of Jesus’ soon appearing and our new glorified bodies that will be like that of our Savior:
“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.”
These verses start with the Father’s great love for us and end with the motivation to live like Jesus now because someday, someday soon, we will be like Him possessing glorified, imperishable bodies that will never die, get sick, wear out, or grow old.
Om Namo Narayan ❤️🙏
The Seated Yogi (including the Pashupati) was a popular theme in the ancient world. We see it moving from Harappan India (2700 BCE, 3700 BP) to West Asia (2000 BCE, 4000 BP) to Celtic Europe (Denmark, 100 BCE, 2100 BP)
Geneticists now hold that modern Europeans are descended from South Asians, who inhabited a region south of a line from Yemen to the Himalayas. There were two migratory routes: first a southern route through West Asia and the Levant and the Mediterranean coast; and the second, a more northerly course through Central Asia and Eurasia. These movements took place over a period of more than 10,000 years, beginning perhaps 50,000 years ago or a little less.
In this regard, there are literary accounts in the Vedas and the Puranas of Indian dynasties being either driven or migrating West and North. The Ikshvaku King Mandhata (Rama's remote ancestor) drove some troublesome princes and their followers, the Druhyus, out of India to the northwest. Some time later, the Bharat King Sudasa, assisted by the Rishi Vasistha and Vishwamitra, drove other Druhyus and Prithu-Parthivs (proto-persions) beyond the frontier into Central and West Asia.
When we move to the Harappan period, records become more abundant. We have numerous Harappan artifacts including seals from Mesopotamian sites in Sumeria (akkadia) and what is now Bahrain, which used the weights and measurements of Harappa in its trade. Indian themes like the Seated Yogi show a westward diffusion — from Harappan India to West Asia to Celtic Europe (see the figure)
Akkadian records attest to the importation of trade items like cotton and lapis lazuli (a semi-precious stone) from India.
While Indian artifacts in West Asia are common, Mesopotamian artifacts in India are rare. This suggests a mainly westward movement and not a free exchange as with India and Greater India. Even in Greco-Roman times the main trade was from India, which drained the Roman economy.
With the drying up of the Saraswati river in the 2200-1900 BCE (4200-3900 BP) period, followed by the decline of Harappan civilization, there were further movements west out of India.
A people of Indian origin known as the Kassites, went west and overthrew the Amorite Empire of Babylon (of the famous Hammurabi) beginning about 1750 BCE (3750 BP) a Kassite military class ruled Babylon for over 500 years. Their deities — Shimalaya (Himalayas), Maruttias (Maruts), Surias (Surya) and others attest to their Indian ancestry. Some centuries later, the Hittites and the Mittanis sealed a treaty by invoking Vedic deities like Indra, Mitra and Varuna in Anatolia, nearly a thousand miles to the west. These Indian people occur mainly as ruling aristocracy, not uncivilized barbarians.
It was not until the time of Alexander the Great in the fourth century BCE (600 BP) that Western peoples finally made it to India in a significant way. Yet the Greeks did not find an uncivilized India. Instead they marvelled at its civilization and made an effort to learn from it, particularly on spiritual matters. The message is clear, the movement of peoples, culture and spirituality in ancient times were mainly from east to west.

ala Lingam in Panching Sivan Temple (Charas Cave) – Kuantan, Pahang - TemplePurohit.com Established majestically to tower its surrounding is the pristine Charas cave, the abode of an immensely mystical Sivalingam. Ascending the steel stairs, as though soaring towards Kailasam, Saivite devotees will bask in the splendor of Panching Sivan temple. Lord Shiva, the dweller of Saivite hearts, resides in this mystical setting, encouraging devotees to rise into the realms of spirituality. The Sivalingam was brought to the cave in 1989 by Nachitram, a lawyer from Negeri Sembilan. At that time, the lawyer had visited Charas Cave, to a Buddhist Temple which was built nearly a hundred years ago. During his visit there, he met with a ‘Siddhar’ (Indian Sage) in the cave, who advised him to bring a Sivalingam and install in the cave. He had forgotten this spiritual instruction, but was gently reminded by a close associate. He immediately flew to India to purchase the black marble Sivalingam, and got it shipped to Malaysia. Upon returning it to Panching, he was informed by the Buddhist temple that there was never a presence of an Indian man in the caves. It is believed is that there are several Indian sages who meditate in the cave, but are concealed to the public, however manifest occasionally to dispense spiritual guidance. Dr.Sethugavalar, the temple President, together with other noble Hindus arranged workers to haul the 9 feet tall Sivalingam to the entrance of the cave, an astonishing 150 feet up. From there, the Sivalingam had to be gradually rolled into the cave for distance of another 100 meters for installation, and was placed facing north. The temple committee sought the assistance of a leading temple builder in the country, Sthapati Thannirmalai. The sthapati came to the temple and advised the temple committee that the position of the Sivalingam is currently facing north, but would be more auspicious if facing east. After carrying out the sthapati’s instructions, the temple committee arranged a Maha Kumbabhishekam on 8th June 2008 with the participation of 2,000 devotees https://ift.tt/2SE5VQo
