Devkali Shiv Temple

Devkali Shiv Temple, a historical shrine, is 7 km from Lakhimpur in Uttar Pradesh. As per Bhagavad Gita, Janmejayi, the son of king Prikshit, arranged Nag Yaga at this place. All the snakes, by the power of the yaga mantras, jumped into the Hawan Kund. After this yaga, no snakes were found in the area.

It is believed that the holy soil of this temple would not allow the snakes to enter the place.

The temple derived its name from the daughter of Lord Brahma, Devkali, who did a severe penance here.
