OTHER RELIGIOUS PLACES
Morgaon is situated on the banks of river
Karha. Legend Heard about the origin of Karhaganga is…..
Once Brahmadeva misbehaved with goddess
Saraswati. He felt very much guilty of his behaviour.
He became restless. To purify his mind he visited all
holy places in the world, conducted all the rituals
& collected the holy water (Tirth) in his Kamandalu.
Then also he was not pacified, so he came to Morgan.
He did Pooja-Abhishek on Mamayureshwar. While taking
holy round of Mayureshwar, Kamandula filled with sacred
water was tumbled down by Brahmadev’s leg. God
Brahma was sorely disappointed. While he was reffing
his Kamandalu Shree Mayureshwar said,“O God Bhrahma!
don’t feel disappointed & fill this Kamandalu.
Let this water be flown here in the form of river, Bramha
Kamandalu Ganga i.e Karhaganga to destroy world’s
sin. You take a spoonful of sacred water & be purified.”
Like this Karhaganga appeared in Morgaon.
There are seven tirthas in the course of five miles
of river karha. They are Shree Ganesh Tirth, Bhima Tirth,
Kapil Tirth, Vyas Tirth. Rishi Tirth, Sarvapunya Tirth
& Shree Ganeshgaya Tirth.
To the north of karhaganga, at a distance
of one mile there is a land of Jadbharat Muni. Previously
there used to be a big Aashram of Jadbharat Muni. At
present there is only one big rock having five lingas
of Mahadev. It is necessary to take darshan of Jadbharat
rock when you visit Moregaon.
Nagnabhairav temple is situated to the
east of Moregaon on the border of village. Yatra (Pilgrimage)
is not completed without having darshan of Nagnabhairav.

he protects Ganesh devotees and give them prosperity.It
it is not possible to visit this place,you can very
well complete these rituals in the small temple of Nagnabhairav
