  • Ajgaivinath Temple : Ajgaivinath Temple in Sultanganj is one of the most well-known Hindu temples devoted to Lord Shiva. The idol in Ajgaibnath's main shrine is thought to be Swayambhu (self-manifester). According to legend, the statue in the Ajgaivinath Temple protruded into Jahnu Muni's ashram. According to legend, while Muni Jahnu was meditating in his ashram, the Ganges on her trip to the ocean startled Jahnu with the ripples of her waves. Muni Jahnu is said to have swallowed the entire Ganges, and Muni Bhagirath saved the Ganges by making an incision on Jahnu's thighs to make room for the Ganges. As a result, the Ganges River was given the name Jahnavi.
