In Badahara, Dubauliya-7 Nawalparasi, there is a shivalaya. An interesting story beholds about the establishment of this place. In the old days, this place was a cell holding prisoners committing different crimes. In order to educate the prisoners and establish peace in their mind and heart, a shivalinga suddenly appeared out of the thin air, it is said so. Due to influence of divine power, the prisoners regretted their bad deeds and started following Shiva and soon lived a peaceful, non-violence life. So as to commemorate that incident, a Shivalaya was established afterwards. A kuwa (small pond) lies near the temple. People believe that the consumption of the spring water cures diseases. Worshippers visit the temple during the Mondays of the month shrawan, Krishnastami, Shivaratri and many other festivities.
