BHIMASHANKAR

Nearby is another kund, the Sarvatirth, and the shrine of the goddess Bhashitadevi. Then there is the Jnyankund which is supposed to have been created by Dattatreva. To the south of the Bhima shankar temple is the Kusharanya tirth. From this spot the Bhima changes the direction of her course and starts flowing towards the east.

To the east of the main shrine, nearly a Mile or so from the Mokshakund is the Gupta Bhimesh, The Bhima, jumps a steep scrap into the valley below and falls upon the head of Shiva not unlike the Ganges. The ling at this place is 'gupta’ that is hidden, never to be seen by eye. The approach to the spot passes through thick bushes and is quite stiff. The growth is so dense at places that very often wild beasts make it their hideout and hence nobody goes alone to this place which, apart from its religious and mythological significance, gives a real glimpse into the 'raudra’, ferocious beauty of the Sahya mountains. A visit to this place is worth even for seeing the sight. The bare cliffs of the mountain, the darkish greenery around and the milky foam of the down- rushing Bhima are an enchanting scene.
