Located favourably on the banks of Rapti and Rohani rivers, Gorakhpur is an ancient city in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It shares one of its borders with Nepal and due to this, it serves as a stopover for tourists who want to reach Nepal. There are many places of religious importance in Gorakhpur that attract several tourists from near and far. Gorakhnath Temple, dedicated to Saint Gorakhnath, is one of the major attractions of this city. Built in the 12th Century, this temple was attacked many times by the Mughals. But, it was rebuilt and today it stands as one of the most architecturally magnificent temples of the city. Another place worth-visiting in Gorakhpur is the Gita Press. Though known widely as a publication house, mainly of religious books, it is more than that. The building of the press is designed wonderfully in the shape of a temple, with marble walls that are decorated with inscriptions and pictures from the epic Mahabharata. The interiors of the building are adorned with paintings and wall hangings that reveal stories of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna. Arogya Mandir, Veer Bahadur Singh Planetarium, Imambara and Geeta Vatika are other places of tourist interest in Gorakhpur.
