LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI
THE STORY OF GUPTA BHIMESH
At about a
mile away to the shrine, there lies Gupta Bhimesh. Here, the river Bhima jumps
from a steep peak into the valley below and falls upon the head of Sivalinga.
The passage to this is very difficult due to dense growth of forest and also
infested with wild animals. As the Siva could not be visible it is called
Guptaganga. Its interesting story is linked with a king of Nepal who due to
abuse of powers turned a fakir and during his wanderings he visited this Gupta
Bhimesh shrine on the advice of one famous sage Gomil. With the grace of the
Gupta Bhimesh he got back his kingdom and ruled happily there afterwards.
