Bikram Baba, Pilgrimage Tour of Chitwan

Across the Rapti River, south of Jagatpur there exists a temple under a tree which has high religious value. People worship Bikram Baba (holy saint) in this place. The word leads to a meaning of BRAVE GUARDIAN in Hindu mythology. Tharus, Kumals, Darais are ethnics who hold huge belief in Bikram Baba. They worship, wishing they'll have child soon.

But recently, all ethnics are attracted to this pilgrimage and are indulged along with Tharus and others. Pilgrims believe that their wish will be surely fulfilled if worshiped sincerely. They release pigeons and sacrifice animals to empower their devotion. This place is also being utilized these days as a recreational and picnic spot by youngsters more recently.

Bikram Baba is a holy place for Hindus, and is named after a Hindu god popular among the indigenous Tharu people. It is a very popular destination for thousands of people during the week or two that it is open. The location of worship is in the forest centered around a tree. About 10-15 years ago a local man found a stone at the base of this tree that he said was in the shape of Bikram Baba. It is thought that if a person prays with a faithful heart their wishes will be granted.
