Fakkar Temple

During my visit to Orchha last year I was taken to a "Fakkar" [sp?] Temple near the Ram Raja Temple. My guide, a year old boy, told me he visited here daily to pray for his health. Does anyone know what "Fakkar" is?

Fakkar means a person, who is free from all tensions, who owns nothing, who have no material desires...

Basically a free soul................

I think the word you are looking for is 'Fakir'.
