Updated on 3 July, 2017 at 2:03 pm By

Whenever one gets to know of a temple, the most common and obvious thought is that people must be going there to worship the deity. However, there is a temple in Bharmour, near Chamba valley lying in the north Indian state of Himachal Pradesh where people are afraid of going.

The reason why people are fearful of going to the temple is that it is believed to be the abode of Yamaraj, the god of death, as per Hindu mythology.

Dharmeshwar Mahadev Temple, also known as Dharamraj Temple and Yamraj Temple, is one of the Chaurasi temples in a complex comprising 84 temples. The temple which looks more like a home, is also locally called dhai-podi which translates into two and a half steps.

Dharmeshwar Mahadev Temple is the only temple in the world dedicated to Yamaraj. The temple has four entrances each of which is made up of a different metal. Gold, silver, iron and copper are used in making of the four different doors. There is a mention of these doors in the Garuda Puran, an ancient religious text.

People visiting the area are scared of passing through even the neighborhood of the temple, leave alone entering it and offering prayers. People desirous of offering prayers to the deity do so from outside the temple. It is held that the temple also has a special area dedicated to Chitragupta, the associate of Yamaraj.

According to mythology, the soul of every Hindu who dies comes to this temple to meet Chitragupta who keeps account of all the good and bad deeds of people. As per the account of deeds of human beings, Yamaraj decides whose soul will enter which of the 4 doors of the temple.
