       LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI

Brushing aside the claims, like that the real Bhimashankar is enshrined in the Kamarupa country i.e. the present Assam, not the one found at Bhuvanagiri village in the Poona district of Maharashtra state; or it is in that Dakini country now in the Nainital district, but not this one in Maharashtra, and leaving such arguments to ivory tower pundits, if we enter the hill temple at Bhimashankar, the All-Compassionate Lord Siva gleams into our sight and fills our souls with anugraha infinite making our countenances beam with joy inexplicable. 

The Mulavirat of the temple situated atop the Sahyadri hills is one of the dwadasa jyothirlingas and has a glittering past and ineffable glory. This archamurthis has had a splendid past and is conceived of taking rest after Tripurantaka samhara on granting the request of his stay here to the gods who congregated to pour out their ecstatic joy over the death of that lokakantaka and express their gratitude. It is indeed magnificent to look at him though his form was roudra in its intensity and strength in totality. It has many other plus points that have been luring Saivites in particular and theists in general since that act of killing Tripura for universal peace.
