SOMANATH - SOMANATH JYOTIRLINGA

Is it not then akin to Phoenix, the mythological bird that burns itself after living a full century on funeral, only to rise from the ashes, young and energetic to live another cycle? Does this not again divulge the truth that Hinduism is apratihata, apurva, ajeya, ananta, anadi, and its glorious career is ajaramara?

It is believed that celebrated Rishis and divine Sages entered the Linga, and it was worshipped in different kalpas by different names. To the Vedic Rishis, it was Kalagnirudra, and later it was called by many names such as, Bairavanatha, Panchamukha Siva, Mrityunjaya, Amritesa, Krittivasa and Hansa Nanda in the periods followed. According to legends, Lord Siva has been present in this thirtha, since the beginning and will remain so for ever.
