A village is situated 6 km from District headquarters in the south-west direction where there is a junction station “Thawe” of the northeastern railway of the Masrakh-Thawe section and the Siwan-Gorakhpur loop-line. In the village there is an old fort but the history of the fort is obscure. The King of Hathwa had a palace there but it is now in decadent state. Close by the residence of the Hathwa Raja there is an old temple dedicated to Goddess Durga. Within the enclosure of the temple there is a peculiar tree, the botanical family of which has not yet been identified. The tree has grown up like the cross. Various

legends are prevalent in connection with the idol and the tree. A big fair is annually held in the month of Chaitra (March-April).
