Barahachhetra Ancient Vanarashi in Nepal, Incarnation of Narayana in Barahaawatar
Sunsari – Barahachhetra, places in Sunsari District of Province no. 1 Nepal used to be called Ancient Vanarashi in Nepal People have that believes it is an incarnation Of Narayana as Barahaawatar (Boar). Lord Vishnu appeared as a giant boar to kill demon Hiranyakashyapu and save the earth from submerging under water (great flood). And, the place is Barahachhetra (Chataraghat nearby Dharan- eastern part of Nepal) which is also well known by ancient Vanarashi (The original Vanarashi) as it is the confluence of Varuna plus Ashi rivers.
There was a time that Indians could not come to Barahachhetra (The original Vanarashi) because of dense forest and malaria plague. Once they could not come at Barahachhetra (ancient Vanarashi) and pay homage, they made new Vanarashi in India side. It is so pity that all the people know about India’s Vanarashi but no idea about the original – Ancient Vanarashi full of spiritual vibration.
This is the only holy place in the world where Hindu and Islam pay homage together – also the reason why Hindu as well as Islam do not kill / eat pig meat till today not because of dirt but honoring boar.
