Such an auspicious place is Shri Shri 1108 Ekadash Rudra Mahadeva temple, at a distance of 3 km only from Madhubani Bus Stand , in Mangrauni village in Madhubani district of Bihar.
Kanchipeeth's Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati felt overwhelmed to see eleven forms of Lord Shiva at one Shakti Vedi, and uttered- this is the only Temple in the whole world of its kind. He visited Mangrauni on 4th may 1997. The heir of temple, Pandit Aatmanand Jha(Baba Aatma Ram) enthusiastically tells that after four years, on 17th may 2001, Jagannath Peethadhishwar Shankaracharya Nishchalanand Saraswati visited the place and felt spell bound and mesmerized to see it and immediately told Baba Aatma Ram that he wished to lord shiva.
Baba Aatma Ram tells, albeit Mahadeva's Mantra is - Om Namo Shivay, yet the founder tantrik of the temple, pandit munishwar jha (1896- 1986) prepared an eleven lettered mantras- Om Namo Shivay, Om Ekadash Rudray.
