The term "Jyotirlinga" refers to a structure built of light.' Centuries ago, Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu argued about who was superior. To put an end to their battle, Lord Shiva transformed himself into an infinitely large column and asked Brahma and Vishnu to locate its end. Shiva assigned the bottom half to Vishnu and the upper half to Brahma.

Brahma began ascending in disguise as a swan, while Vishnu took the form of a boar. Both of them did not see the end of Jyotirlinga. When the race was over and all three gathered, Brahma lied to Lord Shiva, claiming that he had discovered the end of this Jyotirlinga. But Vishnu admitted that he had not found the end of it. At that moment, Lord Shiva cursed Brahma for his lies. Shiva described the features of the Jyotirlinga and declared it was impossible to find its end as it was infinite. After this battle, Jyotirlingas appeared in various places in India from time to time and one of those places is Maharashtra.

Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga

This Jyotirlinga Maharashtra is situated in the Nasik district, from where the Godavari river originates. According to Hindu mythology, Trimbakeshwar Temple is the place where Sage Gautam performed penance so that he could be freed from the sin of cow slaughter. According to the story, in the forest where Sage Gautam lived, other Brahmins also lived with their wives. One day, the wives of those Brahmins got angry with Sage Gautam on some issue and they asked their husbands to expel him out of the forest. Obeying their words, the Brahmins prayed to Lord Ganesha. When the Lord appeared in front of them, they asked for a boon to expel Gautam from the forest. 

Ganesh could not ignore his words, so he took the form of a cow and started roaming around the place where Gautam's ashram was. When the sage went to that cow, the cow died. Seeing this, other Brahmins accused Sage Gautam of cow slaughter and asked him and his wife to go out of the forest and repent of their sins. Sage Gautam started doing penance for Lord Shiva every day and one day Lord Shiva appeared before him. Lord Shiva told him the whole truth and Sage Gautam requested that he establish himself in the form of Jyotirlinga there.

Three small Shiva Lingas are found in this temple, which indicates the Trinity, i.e., Lord Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma. Since this temple is situated on Brahmagiri Mountain, there are stairs to reach it. You can book a Maharashtra taxi service with ForSureTaxi to reach this temple.

Bheema was born after the death of his father, Kumbhakarna. When Bhima grew up, his mother told him the story of how Lord Rama had killed his father, Kumbhakarna. After listening to the story, Bheema became angry, performed severe penance for Lord Brahma, and sought a boon from him to kill Shri Ram. After getting the boon, Bhima became powerful and started troubling humans and gods. Distressed, everyone prayed to Lord Shiva for their salvation. Pleased with the prayer, Lord Shiva decided to protect them, fought with Bheema, and killed him. After his death, Lord Shiva asked people to sit at that place. Bhimashankar Jyotirlinga was established at the same place where all these incidents took place.

According to the story, there lived a Brahmin in Verulgaon whose wife's name was Sudeha. Both of them had a happy life but despite working hard, they did not have any children. Troubled by this, one day the Brahmin's wife, Sudoha asked him to marry her elder sister, Ghushma so that they could have a child. Her husband, Sudharma, agreed and married Ghushma. Ghushma was a devotee of Lord Shiva and used to worship him by making one hundred and one Jyotirlingas every day. After worship, she would immerse the Shivalinga in the river.

After a few days, Ghushma and Sudharma were blessed with a son and there was an atmosphere of happiness in the house. After a few years, Sudeha became jealous of Ghushma and decided to kill her son. One day, after getting an opportunity, Sudeha killed Ghushma's son and threw him in the same river where Ghushma used to immerse Shivalinga every day. After this incident, people became very distressed but Ghushma continued performing her work as usual. As soon as she went to immerse the Shivalinga in the river, her son came alive and came to her. Then Shiva appeared there and asked Ghushma to ask for a boon. Ghushma asked him to sit there. You can take a visit to this temple by hiring a taxi service in Maharashtra from ForSureTaxi.
