Trikuta Parvata , Deoghar
Trikuta Parvata or Trikuta Pahar, collectively known as Trikutachal, is a combination of three main peaks on the hill. The three peaks of the TRIKUT hill signify the holy trinity of Brahma , Vishnu and Mahesh.
Trikuta Parvata is situated at the height of around 2,470 ft. Trikuta Parvata is located at a distance of around 10 km from Deoghar on the way to Dumka.
Pilgrims visit this holy site all around the year. The site serves as a location for Sage Bam Bam Baba for commencing his penance. It is frequently thronged by travellers and pilgrims during the month of Shravan for collecting wood apple leaves. Also known as Garden of Shiva, the site has trees of wood apples in abundance.
The hill is the origin point of river Mayurakshi and also has a famous Shiva Temple, which is popular with the name of Trikutachal Mahadeva Temple. Apart from this, the site also houses an altar of the goddess of Trishuli and a cottage of sage Dayananda.
DRIL has built a cable car that takes passengers to the top of the hill offering a great view of the holy town of Jasidih, Deogarh. The steep climbing angle and lack of a road to the top of the hill presented a challenge to the construction.
