Sabka "MANGAL"Hoy re......................

Amalner is a Taluka in Jalgaon district, situated on the Bori River bank is a city in Jalgaon district of Maharashtra state.

Mangal Dev Graha Temple is a very famous Hindu temple located in Amalner, Maharashtra. Amalner is also famous for the industrial area (MIDC). There are only two temples of Mangalgrah in India and worldwide, one at Kolkata and one at Amalner. We feel proud that  1 temple is located in our Maharashtra.

People believe that Shri Mangal Dev Temple of Amalner is one of the most ancient, most rare and most ‘live’ ( people experience fulfilment of wishes and desires).


Temple is devoted to God Mars. It is public knowledge that temples of Shri Mangal Dev are very rare. Who constructed the Mangal Dev Grah (planet) temple in Amalner and when was the idol established? There is no authentic information regarding this. Some believe that the temple was renovated for the first time in 1933. After 1940 the temple once again went into oblivion and reached a stage of dilapidation. The post 1999 renovation has brought about a miraculously pleasant transformation in the temple and its surroundings. In the last 5 to 7 years the pace of development of the place and facilities has increased manifold.The premises are well developed and have become a picnic spot.

Position of Mangal Graha plays vital role in lagna kundali as per Hindu Manyata. Manglik Dosha is a common dosh found in a Kundali, considered astrologically bad. Mars is called Mangal in sanskrit and an astrological situation is formed when mangal in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th and 12th house of a persons horoscope. This is called Mangal Dosha and people who have this are called Manglik. This dosha can happen to anyone. Mars represents respect, ego, self esteem, and energy so those who have Mangal dosha might have a vulnerable nature which could hinder relationships, but its also believed that Mangliks have fire energy in them if used in the correct way.Mangal Dosha in the kundli can have a negative effect on your married life, mental health and might even lead to financial issues. If the Manglik is born on a Tuesday however the effects are nullified. To completely negate the effects of this in marriage, two Mangliks can be mutually wed to cancel out the effects.

To minimise effect of Mangal Graha in Kundali (Which plays a vital role to fix Marriage) peoples from varoius regions visit this temple.

To know more one can visit the website of this temple i.e. http://mangalgrahamandir.com

The earrings are mostly made of gold. The ear piercing ritual is very significant for girls and boys. The nerves connect to the eyes and in females, it is connected to the reproductive organs. Therefore, wearing an earring provides friction which results in better eyesight.

4.NOSE RING:

According to Ayurveda, piercing the nose near a particular node on the nostril helps in lessening the pain during monthly periods in women. Hence, girls as well as older women are supposed to wear nose rings. It is preferred that women wear nose rings on the left nostril since the nerves leading from the left nostril are associated with the female reproductive organs. Piercing the nose at this position helps in easing childbirth.


5.MANGALSUTRA (NECKLACE):
.
 According to scriptures, the Mangalsutra attracts a lot of positive and divine energy. In a Mangalsutra, the two golden cups are hollow from one side and is raised on the other side.

It also regularises the blood circulation in body.

6.RING:

It is the most common ornament worn by both men and women. The nerves of our body are connected to each other and metal is considered good for health. Ring finger has a nerve which is connected to heart through brain. Thumb rings are said to stimulate the pleasure hormones. Usually, rings are not worn on middle finger because the nerve of this finger passes through the brain divider line and if any metallic friction is here, then there is a confusion in the brain which affects decision-making ability.

7.BANGLES:

Bangles regularise the blood circulation in the body. Furthermore, the electro-magnetic energy passing out through outer skin is again reverted to one's own body because of the ring shaped bangles, which has no ends to pass the energy outside. People who know about reiki/energy healing can understand that energy can be channelled from the hand and directed to the palms. This way a women gains her strength which mighted be getting wasted otherwise.
