Shivganga is a small pond of water and this water of the pool is considered holy. People believe that bathing in this holy water can cure many diseases. Shivganga is situated 200m away from the Baidyanath temple. Many devotees take a holy dip in the water before visiting the temple. There is also a small Shiva temple near Shivganga.
