Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga near Nasik

It is believed that Trimbakeshwar is the holiest place of Hindu mythology. The most unique feature of this temple is that the Shiva Linga here has three faces of the three almighty Gods of Hindu mythology – Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwara. River Godavari originates from here and anyone is believed to have acquired salvation, once he or she visits this place.

2. BHIMASHANKAR JYOTIRLINGA, PUNE

Bhimashankar Temple
Bhimashankar Temple near Pune

Lord Shiva appears as “Ardhanareeshwara” in this temple. River Bhima originates from Bhimashankar. The river is considered sacred because it is believed that the river is actually the perspiration of Lord Shiva after he defeated the demon Tripurasura. A holy dip in the river is believed to relieve one of their sins.

3. GRISHNESHWAR JYOTIRLINGA, AURANGABAD

Grishneshwar Temple Jyotirlinga in Maharashtra
Grishneshwar Temple near Aurangabad

Located very near to the Ellora caves, Grishneshwar temple is the last of the 12 Jyotirlingas. For devotees who undertake the Jyotirlinga pilgrimage, a visit to this temple completes their journey to the holy places of Shiva. One can reap the benefits of worshiping all the 12 Jyotirlingas by just visiting this one temple.

4. PARLI VAIJNATH JYOTIRLINGA, MAHARASHTRA

Parli Vaijnath Temple Jyotirlinga in Maharashtra
Parli Vaijnath Temple

This temple is located in a village that is home to mountains and thick forests rich in medicinal herbs. Since the Parli Vaijnath temple is amidst such a healing atmosphere, the Lord here is addressed as Vaidhyanath. Devotees are allowed to touch the Shiva Lingam during worship and this helps in healing and reaping various health benefits.

5. AUNDHA NAGNATH JYOTIRLINGA, MAHARASHTRA

Nageshwar Jyotirlinga
Nagnath Temple

It is believed that the Aundha Nagnath Temple was built by Yudhisthira, the eldest Pandav, while they were in an exile for 14 years. Devotees believe that by praying at this temple, one can safeguard themselves against all poisons.
