TRAMBAKESHWAR - TRYAMBAK

The description of the kshetra would not be complete without a reference to the various maths or monasteries and samadhis. Apart from Nivrittinath, several other spiritualists like Brahmanand maharaj, Ram-Mahadev, Jagannath maharaj, Mauni Baba, Aradhi maharaj etc. had made the vicinity of the kshetra their home. Samadhis of some of them and maths established by a few of these are still in existence at Tryambak. A rather unusual type of math is known as ‘akhada’. These are the centres of several Orders of mendicants or sadhus such as Nirvani sadhus,Niranjani sadhus, Dasnami sadhus, Udasi sadhus, Nath-sampradayins etc. Some of these like the Dasnamis and Nirvanis go around in the digambar state- wear no clothes. They have their periodic festivals and sect deities. The Dasnamis worship Dattatreya, the Niranjanis venerate Skanda.

The Udasis are devotees of Guru Nanak. The Nath sadhus as the name indicates are followers of the Nath sampradaya. These ascetics, many of whom are wandering, form a very large section of the Simhastha fairs that gather here.This is the aspect that the great Godavari river and its presiding deity, Tryambakeshvar present to the modern visitor.
