TRYAMBAKESHVAR - TRYAMBAK

This hall of mirrors was built by Sardar Vinchurkar of Poona. These Vinchurkars are also responsible for the golden kalash that surmounts the shikhar of the Shrine. Music is played from the nagarkhana - drum-house-when the worship is going on and also in the early morning. Of the periodic rites, as against the daily ones, the ‘Kushavarta snana’ is the most important. Every Monday morning the mask is placed in a palanquin and ceremonially taken to the Kushavarta tirth. Musical accompaniment is of course there. The servants of the shrine, such as mace-bearers etc. lead the procession. On the tirth the image receives a ritual bath, after which it is brought back to the shrine and the routine daily rituals follow.

In addition to Mondays on some other days also this palanquin procession is taken out, These days include some of the most important Hindu festivals like Dassera, Divali, Padava and some other days significant from the Shaivite point. These are the Shivaratris, the full-moon day of the month of Kartika etcOn all these occasions the great golden crown is placed on the image and several ornaments are also placed on it.There are very few reliable historic references to this particular shrine that could be taken back to a period earlier than the eighteenth century.

The vicinity of Tryambakeshvar,Godavari, Nasik, Panch- vati etc. was well known from ancienttimes. The fort of Anianeri was an important stronghold of the Abhir rulers and enjoyed great importance during the Maratha period.
