TRYAMBAKESHVAR - TRYAMBAK

As the story goes sometimes flames emerge from the ling and sometimes deep thunders not unlike the roar of a lion ensue from it. A pot is constantly hanging from a chain over the ling, water drizzling on it drop by drop. This abhisheka goes on continuously. A golden mask is superim- posed on the ling. It consists of five faces. A golden crown is placed on these heads. This golden crown was presented to the deity by Peshwa Sadashivarao Bhau, and the tale goes that it was brought from the treasures of the Delhi emperors, who had carried it away from the Mysore kings. There is a single-faced silver mask that is used for daily worship, while the golden one is used for ceremonial occasions. This is the darshan of one of the most famous Jyotirlings of this area, that a visitor gets. The impression of cool quient- ness that one receives in this garbhagriha is the most remarkable feature of the shrine.

The daily worship of the god takes place thrice a day. The puja at each of the sessions is rich and consists of maha- naivedya and abhisheka. The Peshwas had marked a sum of twelve thousand rupees a year to defray the cost of the daily Puja and naivedya. The successor governments have continued the grant and hence the worship and other rites are performed in the old manner. A silver mask is placed on the ling at the time of each worship. The routine worship at this place does not differ in any degree from those at other places and hence a repetition is needless. By ten o’clock in the evening the 'sheja-arati’ takes place and the mask which is a substitute for an image at this place is placed on a bed in the hall of mirrors, thereby signifying that the god is taking rest.
