Why Khatu Shyam is so famous

Khatushyamji town of Sikar district is famous all over the world because of the temple of Baba Shyam. This holy land of Baba Shyam is also known as Khatu Dham.

Khatushyamji town is situated at a distance of about 80 km from Jaipur and about 275 km from Delhi. Ringas Junction is the nearest railway station, which is about 17 kilometers from Khatu.

It is said that Baba Shyam fulfills the wishes of those people who get disappointed everywhere.

That's why they are also known as the supporter of the loser. Every year lakhs of devotees come to Khatu Nagri to bow their heads in the court of their deity.

Baba Shyam is also called by the names of Shyam Baba, Teen Baan Dhari, Neele Ghode Ke Asawar, Lakhdatar, Haare Ka Sahara, Sheesh Ka Dani, Morvinandan, Khatu Wala Shyam, Khatu Naresh, Shyam Dhani, Kalyug Ka Avatar, Deeno Ka Nath etc.

Introduction to Khatu Shyam Mandir


Baba Shyam's temple is built in the middle of the town. The mind gets great peace just by seeing the temple.

There is a big hall for worship in the temple which is known as Jagmohan. Mythological pictures are made on the walls around it.

The door of the sanctum sanctorum and the area around it are decorated with a layer of silver. Baba's head is situated inside the sanctum sanctorum. The glass is decorated with beautiful flowers all around.

There is a big ground outside the temple for the devotees. There was a fair ground on the right side of the temple, but now railings have been installed in it for easy darshan arrangements.

Introduction to Shyam Kund


Holy Shyam Kund is located at some distance from the temple. Baba Shyam's head was found from this place, because of this, the water of this kund is considered very holy.

It is believed that this water comes from Patal Lok and all the sins of the person who bathes in this water are washed away.

There are separate pools for men and women. Along with the small Shyam temple, many other temples are built near the kund.

Shyam Bagichi and the mausoleum of Mahant Aloo Singh


There is a Shyam garden in the fair ground, in which the tomb of Shyam ji's exclusive devotee Aloosingh ji is built. It is said that Shyam Bhakt Aloosingh ji used to decorate Baba Shyam with the flowers of this garden.

Major festivals of Khatu Shyam Mandir


Falgun Mela is the biggest among the major festivals of the temple. This fair, which lasts for five days, starts from Ashtami of Shukla Paksha of Falgun month and continues till Dwadashi (Baras). Ekadashi is the main day of the fair.

At the time of the fair, millions of devotees come to visit Khatushyamji, dancing and singing with the Nishan of Baba Shyam.


Many devotees coming to the fair stay in Khatu Nagri till Holi and after celebrating the festival of colors in Baba Shyam's court on Holi, leave for their home.

Among other festivals, Krishna Janmashtami, Holi, Basant Panchami, etc. are also celebrated with pomp along with Baba Shyam's birth anniversary on Ekadashi of Kartik month.

Story of Surajgarh Nishan


The Nishan of Surajgarh of Jhunjhunu district keeps waving throughout the year on the top of the temple. There is a legend behind hoisting the Surajgarh Nishan on the temple.

According to this, many years ago there was a competition among Shyam devotees to put their Nishan on the temple, then it was agreed that the Shyam devotee who opens the closed lock of the temple, his mark will climb on the peak.

Mangalaram, a devotee of Shyam who brought the Nishan from Surajgarh, opened the lock of the temple with a morchhadi. Since that time, the mark of Surajgarh has been rising on the top of the temple.

Story of Barbarik becoming Khatu Shyam


There is a story behind Barbarik being worshiped in the name of Khatushyamji. According to this legend, Barbarik was the grandson of Pandu's son Mahabali Bhima.

His father's name was Ghatotkach and mother's name was Kamkantaka (Kamkatankkata, Morvi, Ahilavati).

Barbarik had obtained three impenetrable arrows from the goddesses by doing penance. With the aim of helping the losing side, he came riding on a blue horse to participate in the Kurukshetra war.

Lord Krishna in the guise of a Brahmin tested his powers by piercing all the leaves of Peepal tree with an arrow. Later asked for his head as a donation.

Barbarik donated his head to Krishna on the Dwadashi of Falgun month. Krishna gave a boon to Barbarik to be worshiped in his name in Kalyug.

History of Khatu Shyam Mandir


After the end of the war, Barbarik's head flowed into the Rupvati river and came to Khatu village.

In the 10th century, when an excavation was carried out at the place of Shyam Kund where milk was flowing from the udders of a cow in Khatu village, the head of Barbarik was found there.

Khatu Shyam temple was built by Roop Singh Chauhan and his wife Narmada Kanwar in 1027 after Barbarik's sheesh was found in Shyam Kund.

During the period of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, this temple was demolished by his orders. After the death of Aurangzeb, a new temple was built by Abhay Singh in 1720 AD (Vikram Samvat 1777).

Due to the temple of Baba Shyam, gradually this village became famous all over the world by the name of Khatushyamji. Today people also know it by the name of Khatu Dham.
