If we don’t mention the name of Historical Sidh Peeth Dudheshwar Nath Math Temple of Ghaziabad it will be a great mistake. Rishi Vishveshar, the father of RAVANA (Ramayan) used to worship Lord Shiva at this temple. Later on Chattarpati Shiva Ji (Maharashtra) rebuilt this historical temple and performed “Pooja”. History of 550 years is written on the walls of this temple.
In 1997 when new District Gautam Budh Nagar was declared, Dadri & bisrakh went to Gautam Budh Nagar. Ghaziabad is an industrial city, with manufactures in railway coaches, diesel engines, electroplating, bicycles, tapestries, glassware, pottery, vegetable oil, paint and varnish, heavy chains, and typewriter ribbons. It is on the Delhi-Kanpur railroad, and many workers commute to New Delhi from there.
