Oldest Hindu Shrine

The Oldest Hindu Shrine

Archaeologists discovered “Baghor shrine”. It is a Devi temple with Yantra continuously worshiped by Hindu tribals and their ancestors. Yantra & temple dates back to 11,000 years. It is worshiped even today.

Jonathan Kenoyer of Harappa Archaeological Research Project(HARP) has been the leading archaeologist of Ancient India for 30 years. He examined the Baghor Kali temple and dated the shrine back to 9000 BC. He was surprised by the “remarkable continuity of religious beliefs in India”. Baghor shrine is a modest temple that only has a stone platform under the Neem tree and a triangular-shaped Yantra worshiped as Goddess in the middle of the platform. Yet, it has been worshiped continuously for 11,000 years from Paleolithic hunter-gatherers to modern-day inhabitants.
