The name of Gorakshnath is particularly significant in Bengali literature due to Nath literature that promotes the glory of Gorakshnath. To determine the time of Gorakshnath, he wrote the book ‘Complete history of Bengali literature’. Asitkumar Bandyopadhyay says: “At any time, from the eighth to the fourteenth century, it is known that it was present in the mortal body.” There are several types of fictional propaganda instead of your arrival. According to some experts, Gorakshnath appeared in Peshawar. According to the militants, he is originally from Punjab but then lives in Bihar. He has probably traveled to many places like monks. From a conventional perspective, the problem is even more pronounced. The fact is that Gorakshnath was surprised to learn of the arrival of the fakirs to spread Islam in this area. Then he came from the west for the sake of his disciples. Along the way, the salt river becomes a barrier. This barrier could not stop it. He began to walk on the water with his legs on the cliff.

However, Gorakshnath was not a resident of the area, which supports the idea that he was a holy traveling monk. The Gorkui Nath Ashram temple has been renovated five times. The ancient temples were probably rebuilt in the last nineteenth century on the ancient temple. The monastery, surrounded by a brick wall, has a north-facing door to the north, three to the west-facing door in the east, and a temple to the south-facing door adjacent to the well.

There is no land at the bottom of the well. No spices were used to join one stone to another. It is believed that the well was filled with water from the stone joints. It is also common to say that there were two holes in the middle of the rock at the bottom of the well. If the two holes were closed, the water would not enter the well and when it opened, the water would be full. Hindus from the lower castes consider the water in the well to be sacred. The fair is held here every year in the month of Falgun. It is believed that bathing with water from this well at the site of the People’s Faith Fair is disease-free.
