Patneshwar mandir is one of the famous Shiv temples in Jamui. Legends hold that the temple was once residence of Goswami family. One day Goswami saw something shining in woods and on closer look he found it was a shivling.
The temple was finally built in 1711 AD. Every year, during Hindu month of Shravan, a 2 feet wall of mud is formed around this shivling and litres of milk is poured over it.
Strikingly the shivling never gets drowned inspite of the heavy pouring of milk. Also known as kamna ling, this temple is also acknowledged for its scenic beauty and picturesque river Kiul. The mountains create natural aura that rules the air of this place.
