The garbha griha is vast and well decorated with architectural designs and carvings of figures, of humans animals, yakshas, floral designs and the like. A graceful spire with curvilinear design rises from atop the garbha griha and heightens its beauty with a dazzling Kalash. In the central part of the garbha griha there lies the swayambhu Jyotirlinga. It has a minute crack from which emerges the water i.e. Gangs drips forth constantly, round the clock and throughout the year. Tradition has that some times flames emerge from this, and also deep sounds of thunder not unlike the roar of a lion now and then. The linga is covered with a golden mask adorned with five faces and a dazzling golden crown, donated by Peshwa Sadasiva Rao, and was supposed to have been brought from Delhi. It was an invaluable gift of the King of Mysore to a temple there, but carried away by Moghul iconoclasts during their raids. This is used on ceremonial occasions only; and for daily purpose, a silver made, single faced mask in used. The remarkable feature found here is, the prevalence absolute quietness not found elsewhere. After offering prayers with rituals, the devotees emerge souls filled with the divinity pervading the entire garbha griha.

After prayers to this Lord , we move parallel . to the east to availing the darsan of Gushmeswara Linga near Aurangabad in the State of Maharastra.
