SAHYADRI - BHIMSANKAR JYOTIRLINGA

Assuming a gigantic form and putting on the aspect of roudra, He entered the battle field followed by His army of ganas including yogins, like Sakini anti Dakini in their fiercest forms. Tripura rushed with his hordes. It was a terrible war when the Lord was constrained to assert like Bhima and fought with an unprecedented valour and superabundant strength. The contest as it went on, became so dreadful that the earth trembled and Adisesha found it hard to holding it on his head. The fiercest exchange of arms at last ended with Tripura's three cities falling to pieces hit by the potent Trisul, heralding the death of Tripura. With the opening of the thud eye of the Lord he was burnt in flames. The exertion was so great that Bhimasankar sat down for a while with perspiration enveloping His whole body. At once all the gods hastened to thank Him for the greatest relief given and hailed His heroism. Pleased with their praises, He asked them what else they wished to be granted then and there. They with one voice prayed to the Lord to remain there in that form for adoration. And the streaming sweat should be converted into an eternal stream for bath: Flashing a smile He said `Yes'. Thus emerged the abode of Lord Siva on the Sahyadri and the river was called Bhima after Bhimasankar. And since then, they became indispensable objects of veneration.
