NASIK - TRIYAMBAKEWSAR JYOTIRLINGA

The Temple

The Triyambakeshwar temple enshrining one of the twelve jyotirlingas is quite magnificent and built on the Indo-Aryan style. Its imposing dimensions, architectural adornments are quite befitting of its eminence. It is surrounded by a massive stone wall pierced by two dwaras and covers 260 x 220 feet area. It is built in black stone by Balaji Baji Rao between 1760 -- 1761 on the old site, which of, course, was very modest in size and sculpture. Tall dipmalas adorn the Mahadwara on either side. In front of the temple, a beautifully sculptured bull -- Nandi is installed in a cupola. Another marble one is found inside. To the eastern most part lies a square mantap of huge proportions. It has doors on all sides and its porches are decorated with cusped arches and moulded pillars. Then comes the antarala lying between garbha griha and big mantap.
