Pictures of the Panchvaktra Temple (Mandi) before and after the floods

 

Pictures, Panchvaktra Temple, Mandi

Last year, I took some pictures in front of the 300 years old Panchvaktra Temple in Mandi. It is one of the ancient temples made from stones by Shikra-style architects. This temple is situated on the confluence of the rivers Beas and the local river Suketi. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva like Bhoothnath Temple in Mandi. Mandi is also known as Choti Kashi because of 80 plus temples in the city. Recently this temple came into national news because of the floods in Mandi - Kullu region. The flow in the Beas River was very fast and high during the floods. The water reached almost near the top of the temple. This temple is more than 35 feet tall and is almost 30 feet above the beas river during the normal flow. 

Panchvaktra Temple,


The water level almost reached the top of the temple but this temple stood firm on its ground which shows the strength of the age-old stone temple building technique of ancient India. These floods did heavy damage in the towns of Mandi, Kullu and Manali. Earlier also this temple has faced many floods in the past and stood firm. Last year during my visit to this temple in June 2022, I never thought that next year this temple will be covered in floods. Below people can watch the picture of the temple in floods and after the floods.

About Bihar Sanskrit Shiksha Board results, recognition and Authenticity

  I posted about the Bihar Sanskrit Shiksha Board (BSSB) earlier too because I found many people struggling to find the results of their exams. Many frauds have been done in the name of this school board and there is news of fake certificates sold for Rs 10,000. For the first time, I have found a school education board whose website changes so fast and we can find multiple websites online. Initially, the first question which came to my mind was that Is Bihar Sanskrit Shiksha Board is a fake one or a real one because it is very hard to find the real and current active official website of this board.  In 2008, the website of this board was www.bssbonline.com and then changed to www.bssbpatna.com. In the 2020 official letter of the board, the official website was written www.bssbpat.com. In an earlier 2019 official letter, two websites are mentioned www.bssbpat.com and www.bssbpat.in.  Online I found the mention of biharsanskritshikshaboard.in as the official website. There is a website n
