Places of Interest In and Around Muzaffarpur
Chaturbhuj Sthan Temple
This is another one of
the most sacred temples of Muzaffarpur. But more importantly it is
probably the oldest temple amongst all the sacred temples of the region and Bihar state. This temple is as old as 600 years old, with its history
dating back to medieval era of 12th century. And any reference to
history of this temple would be incomplete without mentioning about
local saint, with whose effort and perseverance such a grand temple came
into being. It is widely believed that somewhere during 12th century an
unknown local saint, who was devotee of Lord Shiva, got hold of a huge
idol of Chaturbhuj in a small village, far off from Muzaffarpur. Under
very extraordinary circumstances, he brought the idol to Muzaffarpur
and placed it in a place besides idol of Lord Shiva. This is the same
place where today the grand temple stands, which today has became one of
the iconic religious places of Muzaffarpur district.
