Let’s experience the serenity of Dhirdham Temple

The beautiful Nepali-style Dhirdham temple is a Hindu Temple of Lord Shiva located in the Darjeeling market centre. It was built by Purna Bahadur Pradhan in the year 1939.

The temple looks like a multi-layered pagoda from outside and resembles the Pashupatinath temple in architecture.

As you enter the temple premises, you will see a white coloured statue of Lord Shiva facing the temple near its entrance and surrounded by a short height concrete fence. This form represents the five different expressions of Shiva with his universal third eye.

There are trees and shrubbery all around making the entire premise look really nice and attractive. You feel a sense of holiness and serenity as soon as you enter the temple compound. Inside the priests are warm and welcoming to one and all. They are generous in bestowing blessings to the worshippers and even to casual visitors. Don’t forget to get a signature ‘bindi’ (a spot of vermilion powder on the forehead) that represents the blessings.
