25 kms from Mahendragarh, Bagot is
religiously a very important place. There is a famous Shiva temple here. A
big fair is held on the eve of
Shiva-Ratri in the month of Sawan, corresponding with the monsoon months. A large
number of people come here from far and wide to worship the idol of Lord
People take vows that upon the fulfillment of their desires, they will visit the temple and offer the water from the holy Ganges. As per their vows taken earlier and their desires having been fulfilled, the devotees go to Hardwar a week before the fair to bring Ganga water in two small pitchers known as 'Kawars'. They travel on foot during the whole return journey from Haridwar to Bagot. They do not place these pitchers on the earth, as it is believed that by doing so the sacred water contained therein will become impure.
On reaching Bagot, they sprinkle Ganga water over the stone idol of Shiva and offer worship throughout the day by singing hymns and bhajans in his eulogy.
