This is the landmark of Gorakhpur. Name of the city is derived from this place. There is a "taal" supposedly formed because of the pit created when Bheema (second of the five Pandavas) slept here for while waiting for a sage. The Gorakhnath Temple in Gorakhpur is standing on the 52 acres of the land. It is exactly positioned in the heart of the city on Gorakhpur-Sonauli state highway. This temple is a good example of peeth of the Nath sect along with Indian sculpture. The most attractive feature of this temple is the garbh griha where sage Gorakhnath is portrayed as a manifestation of Lord Shiva in deep meditation posture. His very sacred charan paduka has been placed close to his mediation site. There is a pond called Mansarovar also in the east of the Gorakhpur Gorakhnath Temple. This pond has been turned into a boating site by the authorities of the temple. The Gorakhnath Temple in Gorakhpur is almost every day visited by the devotees. But on every Tuesday and Saturday the number of the visitors increases to great extent. During the celebrations of Khichari mela thousands of devotees gather here. This festival falls in the month of January.
