The genesis of Shivadham temple lies in the wish expressed by Shri Shiv Kumar Gupta for a mandir to be built at BABA LAL DASS JI KA BARA ." His wish is getting fulfilled through his wife Smt. Angoori Gupta and family. Angoori Devi Ji has taken on herself to make her husband’s dream come true and her whole family from South Africa is putting their time, efforts and hard earned money to build a sacred place of devotion & worship for the people of Saharanpur.
Late Shri Shiv Kumar Guptaji had immense faith in BABA LAL DASS JI KA BARA and he used to frequently visit the temple to garner inner strength during difficult times. Hence after his demise his wife Smt Angoori Gupta decided to set up a pilgrimage place for everyone so that others can also seek Baba’s blessings. The temple is being built on ‘Naga ridhi’ vidhi ensuring it will be there in existence for a minimum 1000 years helping coming generations to draw continued inspiration. A brief presentation of the events of the construction and countdown phases of Shivadham is presented through a series of photographs. On the occasion of 20th Punyatithi (death anniversary) of Shri Shiv Kumar Guptaji, the foundation stone of Shivadham Temple was laid on around eight acre of land in the presence of Swami Rameshbhai Ojha, Swami Ramdev& Swami Avdheshanand Giriji Maharaj along with various VIPs and other dignitaries on 14th July, 2014.
