Durvasa Dham: Sage Durvasa had performed penance here for thousands of years, disappeared in Kaliyuga

Wherever we find mention of Rishi Durvasa in Hindu religious texts, he is described as having a very short temper. But he was also a very ascetic sage. At present, an ashram has been built at the place where Rishi Durvasa meditated for thousands of years.

Durvasa Rishi Dham Azamgarh: Hindu religious texts describe many great sages. One of them was Durvasa Rishi. Rishi Durvasa was very knowledgeable and also had an angry nature. It is believed that he used to get angry on small things, due to his anger not only ordinary people but also gods and goddesses were afraid. From Mahadev to Devraj Indra, there was no god or goddess who was not a victim of Durvasa Rishi's anger.

Sage Durvasa did penance here

The place where Rishi Durvasa did penance for thousands of years is located 6 km north of Phulpur in Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh. According to mythology, this place is especially famous for the Durvasa Rishi Ashram. In ancient times, thousands of students used to come here to gain knowledge. This place also has a deep connection with Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati.

How did sage Durvasa reach here?

According to mythology, Maharishi Durvasa, son of Sati Anusuiya and Atri Muni, came from Chitrakoot at the age of 12 to the Tamsa-Manjusa river near May Chak Gajri village outside Phulpur. It is said that Durvasa Rishi performed severe penance here for many years. According to mythology, Maharishi Durvasa continued to perform penance at this place in Satyayug, Tretayug, and Dwapar Yug.

Interventions in Kalyug

It is believed that during the Satyug, Tretayug and Dwapar Yug, Maharishi Durvasa performed penance and Yagya here with 88 thousand sages, but as soon as Kaliyug began, Rishi Durvasa disappeared from the place of penance. Even today, a grand ancient statue of Rishi Durvasa is installed in this ashram.

Three-day grand fair

Every year a grand fair is organized here on the occasion of Kartik Purnima. A large number of people come here to have darshan. The statue of Durvasa Rishi in the temple is dressed in spring coloured clothes and people dance and sing. The festival of this day is celebrated with great pomp. Here at the Sangam, on one side of the river is the Durvasheshwar Mahadev temple and on the other side is the Mahabal Nishad temple. It is believed that taking a bath in the Sangam on the day of Kartik Purnima and worshipping God with devotion liberates one from 100 sins. This is the reason why people from all over the country come to the fair held here.
