Effigies of Ravana are burnt. Dashainan was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva. It is said that the process of Ravana did not reproduce in the world of learning. We are going to tell you about the five temples where Dasanan Ravana is worshiped not on the day of Vijayadashami but on Lord Sri Rama.

Bisrakh, Uttar Pradesh

The temple of Ravana is located in Bisarkh village, just 15 km from Ghaziabad. This place is Ravanas birthplace and grandmother. As Ravanas father Vishrava Rishis name became disrespectful, this place started to be called Bisarkha. Here even today people celebrate mourning but not on the day of Dussehra. Ravana is worshiped here both in the morning and evening.

Dashanan Temple - Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh

There is a temple of Ravana in Shivala, Kanpur, which is known as the Dashanan Temple. The doors of this temple open only once a year, on the same day of Dussehra. The temple remains closed for the rest of the year. In the hundreds of years old temple of Darshanan in the Kailash temple located in the middle of the city, Shivala attracts a lot of crowd and special worship is done on the day of Dussehra.

Jodhpur Ravana Temple - Rajasthan

The Mushwala Brahmins living in Jodhpur consider themselves descendants of Ravana. Therefore, they have built the temple of Ravana in Jodhpur where Dashainan is worshiped by the rule. They also offer pinddaan on the day of Dussehra.

Ravan Village, Vidisha - Madhya Pradesh

Ravana is worshiped as Mahatma or Baba in the village of Ravana, located in Vidisha district of Madhya Pradesh. Here a stone statue of Ravana, about 10 feet long, is seated in a lying posture. On the day of Dussehra, special adornments are done here and duly worshiped. Since Ravanas life was in his navel, there is a tradition of applying oil on Ravanas navel, otherwise worship is considered incomplete.

Chikhali - Madhya Pradesh

Chikhali is a village near Ujjain, the city of Mahakal. Here also Ravana is not burnt, rather he is worshiped. It is said about here that the village will be burnt to ashes if Ravana is not worshiped. Due to this fear, villagers do not burn Ravana here and worship his idol.

Mandsaur - Madhya Pradesh

There is a tradition of worshiping Ravana in Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh as well. Mandsaurs real name was Daspur, and it is believed that it was the maternal grandfather of Ravanas wife Mandodari. Hence the name of this city was Mandsaur. Since Mandsaur was Ravanas in-law, and the daughter here was married to Ravana, it is worshiped instead of burning the effigy of Ravana due to the tradition of honoring son-in-law here. There is a statue of Ravana in Rundi of Mandsaur, which is worshiped.

Jhajhod - Rajasthan

The village Jhajhod of Udaipur is considered to be the immortality site of Ravana. It is said here that Lord Shiva installed Amrit Kund in the navel of Ravana. Ravana also established a temple here which is today known as Kamal Nath Mahadev Temple. Here Ravana is worshiped before worshiping Shiva.

Baijnath - Himachal Pradesh

Baijnath is a town in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. There is a temple of Ravana near Binwa bridge. There is a Shivling in this temple and there is a big footprint near it. It is said that Ravana got the boon of salvation by standing on one leg and doing austerities of Lord Shiva. A havan kund was also discovered during the excavation in the eastern gate of this Shiva temple. It is believed that in this tank, Ravana offered a sacrifice and performed his nine heads. It is believed that if Ravans effigy is burnt in this area, his death is certain.
