Origin of Barak River!

The Barak River rises from the Manipur hills, south of Mao in the Senapati district of Manipur at an elevation of 2,331 m. Barak (Meghna) River originates from the Japvo mountain of Manipur hills at an altitude of 3,015 m and flows south through mountainous terrain up to Tipaimukh. The total length of this river is 940 Km out of which 350Km is in Bangladesh

Barak raises in the Manipur hills and enters the plains near Lakhipur. The river enters Bangladesh as Surma and Kushiyara. Later, the river is called the Meghna and receives the combined flow of the Ganga and Brahmaputra. The principal tributaries of Barak are the Jiri, the Dhaleswari, the Singla, the Longai, the Sonai, and the Katakhal.

Story of Siddeshwar the Shiva Temple.

Kapil Muni is a great sage ascetic in Hindu mythology. In ancient times he settled a temple on the bank of Barak Nadi Named Siddesheshwar for meditation and praying to lord Shiva. Barak Nadi originates from Manipur hills beautiful place in Barak Valley, Assam. It is a very old temple. According to Indian “PURANA”s, King SAGAR ruled this land during ancient times.

Who theft Ashwamedh Yajna Horse?

At the same time, a great saint KAPIL made his ASHRAMA in this place. King of Gods INDRA was the only person who arranged ASHWAMEDH YAJNA 108 times. None other than he was able to perform this YAJNA so many times. But king SAGAR started to arrange that Yajna for the 108th time. Being feared that the record of 108 times Yajna in his credit will be shared by another king. Indra theft the Ashwa ( Horse) and kept it in the Ashrama of Saint Kapil.

Where was Yajna Horse Found?

The man of king Sagar started to search for the particular Ashwa and found it in this Ashrama. They thought that the horse has been theft by the saint and started to beat him up. The saint came angry and killed all the king’s men. They were 60000 in number. Hence, the arrangement of Yajna was abandoned.

How Maa Ganga Blessed Bhagirath?

Years later, Bhagirath, a member of king Sagar’s family prayed to mother Ganga (Goddess of water, River) for passing through this valley to give rebirth to those 60000 people. The goddess was satisfied with the prayer of Bhagirath and came down to this valley as a river, and passed through this Ashrama. An Ashrama was made on the bank to commemorate the incident, which is now known as Kapilasrama and this is it.

Who was Kapil Muni?

Everyone must have heard the name, Kapil Muni. According to Shrimad Bhagwat, he is considered one of the 10 incarnations of Vishnu. He has also been called the incarnation of fire and the manas son of Brahma.

Well, this is a complicated question. Lord Kapila is indeed a divine being with extraordinary capabilities. In short, he’s a great sage. There’s a difference between a yogi, Muni, rishi, and Siddhas.

I understand from my knowledge, he’s a master of the science psychology and also Vedic science.
