       LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI

Besides this, there is another thirtha called Kridathirtha used by Gowri and Bhimashankar for jalakrida. Another famous one goes by the name of Vijayagrapada thirtha said to remove barrenness if bathed. The last visit-worthy spot is the Patanasthala lying to the west of main temple. It is a steep gorge through which the Bhimarati flows down into the valley some hundreds of feet below. Tradition says that no one would be hurt, if jumped from this to the bottom of valley; for, once Lord Bhimeswar saved one muni balaka belonging to the asram of famous Jabali, when jumped from this as an act of Prayaschitta for causing death to a cow and calf due to his negligence. The boy when saved pleaded with the Lord to save everyone from death, if they fall from this point into tote valley hundreds of feet below. It was granted. Hence the attraction for visitation. The last but not the least in the list deserving to be visited is the Manmoda Rock cut caves and Chaityas of Buddhists who inhabited this area in large numbers.
