Angrabari Temple or Amreshwar Dham is located in Khunti, Jharkhand. Lord Shiva is the main deity in this temple. Shivalingam is situated in a hollow space of a mango tree. The temple was built and maintained by Amreshvar Dham Prabandh Samiti later it was renamed Amreshwar Dham by the Sage Shankaracharya Swami Swarupananda Saraswati. It is situated on the Khunti-Torpa road NH-20 approximately 45 km (28 mi) from Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand, and 9 km (5.6 mi) from the district headquarters.
The temple is believed to have a Swayambhu Shiva Linga. The temple is also called Amareshwar Dham because the deity according to legend was worshipped by a Mango tree.
Mata Parvati, Maa Durga, Lord Ganesh, Sri Ram, Sita Devi, Sri Lakshman, Lord Hanuman and Shri Radha Krishna are the other deities inside the temple. There is a large crowd of Shiva devotees here during the month of Sawan and on the day of Maha Shivaratri. The main Shivling in the temple does not have a roof over it. This is for the reason that on every occasion when an attempt was made to build a temple around the Holy Shivling; Lord Shiva came in the dream of the person working on it and asked to go ahead in building a roof. At present, the presiding Shivling is under a Banyan Tree.
