Dukhharni Dham is very popular and oldest Ma Durga Temple in Jharia which is located in Jharia-Dhanbad Road. Thousand of peoples come daily to see Ma Durga and worship. This temple is also popular for marriages.
According to Maharajkumari Snehalata kumari Devi(Daughter in law of Late Raja kali prasad Singh and wife Of Rajkunwar Bishweshwar prasad singh):
Dukhharni mandir was setup in 18th century by my forefather Raja Sangram Singh to sought out his problems. Before it was dense forest and considered dangerous. People used to feel scard of ghost and spirits while passing that road to nearby village. There are many stories of people, even I have heard one or two stories. That is why this temple
was setup by Raja Sangram Singh. Maa Dukhharni always protected the travelers and people felt safe to travel.
I will add more details about Ma Dukhharni and its history with images soon.
RSP College stands for Raja Shiv Prasad College which is accredited by NAAC “B” CGPA=”2.59″ now and a constituent part of Vinobha Bhave University Hazaribag located in Jharia-Dhanbad main Road near Dukhharni Mandir.
If we talk about College’s history, after independence of India, there were no colleges and universities available in Jharia Dhanbad coal region to study.
Students did not have any option to study those days. They used to look for colleges. They have to go anywhere else or study at home. There was a Raja of Jharia named Raja Kali Prasad Singh of Jharia Raj Family, who has established the college with the help of their trust in 1949 after independence to help those students.
That time Raja Kali Prasad Singh has started the college named The Raja Shiva Prasad College of the name of his father in this memory.
