MYSON - BHADRESWARA TEMPLES

Bhadreswara Temple

It was in the fifth century AD many Saivate shrines were built in Champs during the reign of Bhadravarma and he named the linga Sambhu Bhadreswara. This noble tradition was followed and carried on with great zeal by his successors, like Prakasavarma and Indravarma II. Their rich endowments took many shapes, like composition of poems in praise of that God of gods, in addition to beautifying the temples with sculptural master pieces. With the passage of time, their fervor reached new heights and many mythologies gained currency, stating that the Shambhu Bhadreswaralinga was given to the sage Brighu by Siva Himself, and who in turn gave it Uroja, a devout king of unprecedented spiritual eminence and indomitable valour. Siva was deemed the only god to be adored and so became the guardian deity of the country. In the eleventh century and later too Siva occupied the position of National God. Uroja, the ardent Siva bhakta renamed the old Sambhu Bhadreswara as Srisana Bhadreswara. His successors honoured the tradition and they went a step further calling themselves as the incarnation of Uroja and spent lavishly to glorifying the temple in many ways.
