This temple is located at a distance of about 8 km from Khalilabad, 43 km from Gorakhpur, in Sant Kabir Nagar district, U.P., India. It can be accessed via NH-28 from Gorakhpur up to Khalilabad & from there up to Nagava via Khalilabad-Mukhlispur road & then 2 km east of Nagava. The place is famous for its Mahadev temple, the idol of which was noticed in the forest, near the village, by herdsmen and since then it has been an object of sanctity. The idol (Shivlinga) formerly stood in the open surrounded by a plinth but eventually Raja of Bansi got the temple constructed over it and at the same time excavated a well and a large tank with the flights of stone steps. It is believed that the temple was established by Kunti, the mother of Pandavas (from Mahabharat epic) and it is the place where Lord Buddha got his hair cut and took Sanyas. The temple is visited by a large number of devotees on Monday, on Shivratri day and during Shravan month.
