Nijananda Dham

Our country Nepal is a place that is full of religious and culturous variations. We live in such a country that has overflowing beauty with diversities. The religions and cultures vary from place to place and region to region here. The Himalayas, Mountains and Terai have their own different kinds of significances. The Terai region also posess a wide range of beauty. While the world is concerned about Gadhimai’s animal sacrifice, few people are aware of a community free of alcohol and tobacco products in Rautahat’s neighbouring area. Najarpur, a village in Chandrapur Municipality’s Ward-9, has been abstaining from using alcoholic beverages and tobacco products. This village, also known as Nijananda Dham, is a model religious village in Province 2.

Province 2 has designated Najarpur as a religious tourism attraction. Najarpur, a village 95 kilometers west of Janakpur, was founded in 1964 and now has about 150 families. This village is an exciting destination in the Rautahat district. The town is called Nijananda Dham, which also houses a Lord Krishna temple. The village’s embrace of vegetarianism is the second explanation for its popularity because any person in the village is vegetarian.

The village was given the name Najarpur because majority of the tribes that migrated to Terai in the 1950s chose this location for their habitation. ‘Najar’ is a Nepali term that means ‘look,’ while ‘pur’ is a Nepali word that means ‘location.’ This location was dubbed ‘Najarpur’ because it was able to attract the attention of numerous migrants looking for new places to reside.The community has a population of around 1000 people and about 150 homes. A famous Hindu temple is located in the village’s centre. The locals are all vegetarians and strong followers of Shree Krishna PranamiSampradaya. Smoking, gambling, and drinking are all prohibited by the municipal government.

The Najarpurmandir (also known as PukhrajDham, SundarDham, and Pranami Mandir Najarpur) is a religious place for the Shree Krishna PranamiSampradaya. It was constructed by new immigrants who arrived in Najarpur in the 1950s. Many reforms were implemented throughout time. The temple is a superb construction by local standards. The temple’s construction is close to “Pukhraj Parbat,” one of the peaks in “Paramdham,” as mentioned in Nijanandasampradaya’s holy book “Shree TartamSagar.” Pandit Shree Hem Prasad Dahal, a rural resident and well-known Nijanandasampradaya teacher in Nepal, proposed and implemented the design.

While the Gadhimai fair, the world’s largest animal sacrifice FETE, continues in Bara, Rautahat proudly proclaims the existence of a vegetarian model hamlet in Rautahat. There is no animal sacrifice authorized here to please the deities. A magnificent fruit orchard is located in the heart of the village, next to an exquisite Krishna Pranami Temple.The temple’s money is used to fund a school, a culinary school, a senior citizen’s home, and a hospice. In the hamlet, there are just six grocery stores, and none of them offer tobacco goods, such as chewing tobacco and cigarettes, or alcoholic beverages.

In 1999, the Najarpur mandir founded by Shree Krishna Pranami Community Primary School. It was the district’s first school to use the Montessori teaching technique. It delivers high-quality education and has received several honors and prizes. It’s widely regarded as the top school in the Rautahat District.

Around this area, Nunthar is a popular picnic area, and Paurai Bagmati, Rautahat, has a Shiva temple. The Rautahat district of Nepal is rich in natural resources. A wide variety of trees and medicinal plants may be found in the Rautahat forest. A dense forest with a variety of wild creatures may be found in Rautahat’s woodland. Among the creatures are cheetahs, tigers, elephants, and different snakes.A grand religious fair was held in the village from February 25 to March 4, 2015, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the renowned Krishna Pranami Temple. Another amazing feature of the village is its location. According to Narmada Bajgain, president of Krishna Pranami Mahila Sahakari Sanstha, a women’s cooperative, no court case has been filed in the last five decades. Despite the fact that the Rautahat area has a poor sanitation rating in the country, the villagers maintain a good level of cleanliness and personal hygiene here in Nijananda dham area.

Najarpur is currently part of the municipality’s Ward 14, which has a mixed population of hill and Madhesi people. It serves as an example for other villages in the country in terms of good developments and practices since individuals from both communities live in harmony. The youngsters in the Nijananda dham area are happy to declare that they are working together to protect the wonderful identity that lies ahead. This agricultural village had also declared itself a completely literate village 20 years prior.
