Religious and Historical significance

The city got its name from Gorakhnath, also known as Gorakshanath, a respected saint who traveled all over the country and wrote many texts that form the foundation of the principles, values ​​and beliefs of the Nath Sampradaya (community) today.

The Gorakhnath temple of Gorakhpur belongs to the Nath Math group of Nath tradition sitting quietly in a vast area of ​​52 acres, which was established by Honorable Guru Matsyendranath ji. Gorakhnath was one of the notable disciples of Matsyendranath. Throughout the history of the yogic culture, Gorakhnath is considered an extremely accomplished Hindu yogi. The Gorakhpur temple was built in the honor of Saint Gorakhnath who did his spiritual practice here.


Every year, on the occasion of Makar Sankranti, thousands of devotees visit Gorakhnath temple in Gorakhpur to offer prayers and enjoy Khichdi. The temple is also sometimes visited by the King of Nepal during such festivals.
