Chunne Miyan’s Lakshmi Narayan Temple, Bareilly

Must Visit

Chunne Miyan’s Lakshmi Narayan Temple is situated in Koharapeer locality in Katra Maamrai region of Bareilly. It stands close to Budhwari Masjid. This is the area where the migrants from Pakistan settled after the partition of India. They built a temple at a piece of land that belonged to a Muslim, popularly addressed as Chunne Miyan. His actual name was Fazal-ul-Rahman.

Chunne Miyan filed a case against the encroachers, but one day he heard the sermon of Shri Harmilapi Ji Maharaj who came from Haridwar. He was so much enchanted by the sermon that he not only gave up his suit against the temple people, but also started supporting it financially. Since then, the name of the temple is tagged with that of Chunne Miyan and is called Chunne Miyan’s Lakshmi Narayan Temple or just Chunne Miyan’s mandir. His name is engraved on the top of the list of donors for the temple. The temple was inaugurated on May 16, 1960 by Dr. Rajendra Prasas, the then President of India.
