NASIK - TRIYAMBAKEWSAR JYOTIRLINGA

The Legend of Godavari

This legend is still more fantastic, and is the longest, perhaps for the characters involved in this are numerous, and time it encircled too is many yugas. It begins with Brahma's striking his axe at Prayaga to preparing, a sacrificial alter in the presence of devas and manavas for performing a sacrifice for Viswasreyas. The axe unearthed a chest. A lady of unparalleled beauty and myriad charms emerged, when it was opened. Her bewitching beauty was so hypnotizing that everyone among the assembled - gods, sages, kings, warriors wanted to marry her. To averting the disaster, Brahma declared that; he who returned first making a bhupradakshana  -- going round the earth, would be 'eligible to marry her. At once, there began a marathon race with every biped participating.
