The temple of Bateshwar Nath, dedicated to Lord Shiva is the oldest temple of Bihar. It is situated in the east direction of Hajipur. The existence of this temple dates back to the Mughal era. The temple is believed to have come into sight from the middle of a thousand year old banyan tree and many believe that the temple is self-constructed.
As a result a large number of devotees are drawn to the shrine. The temple dips into celebration during the month of February during the festival of Basant Panchami along with a lively month long fair organized on Mahashivratri. The place can be visited for peace of mind and for spiritual contentment.
