Bhimashankar Temple - Origins and Stories

The Bhimashankar Temple has interesting stories from the past that make it very special. These stories are filled with important lessons and exciting events.

One famous story is about Bhima, a hero from the big Indian story, the Mahabharata. When Bhima and his brothers were living in the mountains, Bhima met a bad demon also named Bhima, who was causing trouble for the people there. Bhima fought this demon and won, bringing peace back to the area. To remember Bhima's victory, people built the Bhimashankar Temple.

Another story comes from old Hindu stories about Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Once, Goddess Parvati playfully tried to stop Lord Shiva from his deep thinking by turning into a beautiful woman. This caused a small argument between them. To make things right, Lord Shiva turned into Bhimashankar and showed himself as a bright light, making Goddess Parvati happy again. The place where this happened is where the Bhimashankar Temple is now.

These stories make the temple a very important place for many people.

Mahashivratri at Bhimashankar Temple 

Celebrating Mahashivratri at Bhimashankar Temple in Maharashtra is a significant event. This temple, one of the twelve Jyotirlingas dedicated to Lord Shiva, attracts many devotees for the festival. Celebrations include night-long prayers, chanting, and a holy dip in the river nearby. The serene location in the Sahyadri mountains enhances the spiritual experience. Celebrating here during Mahashivratri is special for its deep sense of faith and community, offering blessings and peace to all who join. This festival is celebrated with great reverence and devotion at the temple, attracting thousands of devotees from across Maharashtra and India.


Update as on June 27, 2024 

Currently the water streams on this trek are active and the view is simply awesome. Weather conditions are perfect for this trek and one should not miss this trek. Its not safe to visit this location by yourself, you should always join a reputed trek group to visit trekking locations.
Beware! Low-Cost trek groups often have large batch-size, this results is over-crowded trek experience which is not at all worth, nor is such thing considered safe. Mischief Treks is renowned for conducting treks with a limited number of participants in each batch, this helps having a much better trekking experience.
