It was time to visit the Vishnupad temple. By that time I was very hungry so the driver took me to a roadside café which was pretty good to halt at. I ordered for burgers and milk shake and while devouring them, I met a British couple on the next table enjoying their food halt. I exchanged a few words with them coming to know that the Vishnupad Temple Gaya Bihar will turn up to be a memorable experience.
When I reached the Vishnupad temple, I was completely awestruck. The temple is majestic and elegant at the same time for my eyes were tripping looking at the site. The temple is situated along the Falgu River. It was said that legendary saints had visited the temple during ancient times. It was also believed according to mythology that Lord Rama and Sita had themselves visited this temple. Though I could not believe it, I came to know that the temple had lord Vishnu’s footprint in the centre. The pillars inside the temple simply took me over for their construction was absolutely awesome. The pillars were arranged in rows and I could also see beautiful granite work around me. The pillars were carved properly and it is a very good example of fine architecture. It made me realize how rich was our country’s history and how lucky we were to get a life here. While I was moving around the temple I was amazed to see the beauty of the place. The meaning of Vishnupad was supposed to be Lord Vishnu’s foot. The Gaya municipality is taking care of keeping the place clean. They took all the possible efforts as they knew that the site held very high historical significance. I found a corner to sit and then realized that man lives with a motive and belief and historical places like these maintains trust upon his belief.
The Vishnupad Temple Gaya Bihar was a breath taking experience. I was enough lucky to see Lord Vishnu’s foot and getting the vibe of holiness around the place simply made me glad. I could see people from all corners of the country coming and worshipping with sheer trust. I could not forget my experience here.
