Khatu Shyam: Do you know who built the ancient Khatu Shyam temple?


Khatu Shyam: Baba Khatu Shyam Temple is famous in the country and abroad. Devotees from all over the world come here to see Baba and seek his blessings. Baba Shyam fulfills the wishes of all his devotees.

It is believed that no devotee returns empty handed from his court. That is why they are also called the support of the loser. But even today most of the people do not know which king had built the temple of Baba Khatu Shyam ji and which dynasty that king belonged to.

As you know that in Dwapar Yuga, the three arrow wielding warriors are the form of Baba Khatu Shyam, Lord of Barbaric Kaliyuga. Barbarik was a brave warrior. He was the grandson of the extremely powerful Pandava Bhima and the son of Ghatotkacha. He had only three arrows. Those three arrows had so much power that they could destroy all three worlds together.

According to the Puranas, when the Mahabharata war took place, Barbarik also became a part of the war and came to Kurukshetra to show his ability in the battlefield. Let us tell you, Barbarik had promised his mother that he would fight on behalf of the losing side in the war.

In which river did Lord Krishna immerse Barbarik's head?

When Lord Shri Krishna came to know that Barbarik had also come to Kurukshetra to join this war, he asked for his head in charity. After which Barbarik worshiped the Gods and Goddesses and after paying obeisance to Mother Goddess, he separated his head and offered it to Shri Krishna. Shri Krishna immortalized that head and placed it on a mound and blessed Barbarika that it would be worshiped in his name in Kaliyuga.

After the end of the war, Lord Shri Krishna drowned that head in the Rupvati river and ordered in a dream to Raja Roop Singh Chauhan of Khatu village of Sikar district that at this place in Khatu you will find a head inside the ground, that head is a Will be buried ritually. – Get the temple constructed in Khatu as per the rules and regulations.

The head was buried in the ground under a Peepal tree

The king's dream came true. When he woke up in the morning, some people of the village came and told that milk was coming out from the udder of a cow under the Peepal tree on its own for a long time. Hearing this the king immediately reached that place and got the excavation done.

On investigation, a severed head was found at that place, Raja Roop Singh Chauhan and his wife Narmada Kanwar worshiped that head with rituals, installed it and built a temple there. Today we worship that temple in the name of Baba Khatu Shyam Ji.
