Giridih: The death of hundreds of bats in the famous Harihar Dham of Giridih district has created a stir among the priests there.

The priests are beginning to fear the spread of some disease in the area.

These bats were living on a tree in the temple premises for a long time.

It is extremely hot these days in the Bagodar area of the district.

Some people say that the bats have died due to the extreme heat, while pundits fear some untoward incident.

There is a garden in the huge complex of Harihar Dham temple situated on Bagodar-Hazaribagh road, in which bats that had been camping in the trees for a long time have died.

For the last 3 days, the maximum temperature in Bagodar area of Giridih district has reached 45 degrees.

The scorching heat has started affecting humans as well as animals and birds.

Meanwhile, hundreds of bats living on the trees in the garden of Harihar Dham temple of Bagodar have died.

After death, bats are falling from the tree to the ground.

In this regard, temple manager Bhim Yadav said that there are more than a thousand bats on the trees of the garden in Harihar Dham temple.

He is dying due to the extreme heat.

It is believed that these birds have very little ability to tolerate heat.
