India’s spiritual culture degraded under foreign subjugation and also in post-independence era due to the government’s apathy. This neglect was visible in India’s temples and holy places. Once vibrant and flourishing, these places became dilapidated and dirty. After India’s independence, the government declared the factories and malls to be India’s new temples and synagogues. Western materialism replaced the age old traditional values.
This state of affairs is evident as one lands in this north Indian district. One is greeted by potholed streets, meandering pigs and overflowing drains. But beneath this chaos, under this filthy covering lies the true spiritual form of this transcendental abode. This can be attested by any one who visits this place. There is something here which captures the heart and mind of the visitor and invokes some inexplicable feelings. This explains why it is on international tourism radar even though there is nothing spectacular here, in an external, superficial sense.
