       LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI

It is here the sweat drops of the Lord were converted into a stream which is flowing since then perennially under the name of Bhimarati; it is at this temple Mother Gowri is worshipped as Kamalaja indicating thereby that she was worshipped with lotuses by Brahma; it is here lies the Mokshakund that liberates seven generations of the forefathers of the person bathed; it is here lie several other sacred thirthas created by Dattatreya and Bhashitadevi; it is here lived the famous rishi Jabali; it is here located shrines for Sakini and Dakini, who helped Lord Bhimashankar in his war against Tripura; it is this temple built by two bankers unlike by kings and it is here the lokabhayankar Tripurasura met his death at the hands of Lord Shankar.

Consecreted by the presence of Lord Siva in the aspect of Bhima, enshrining the image of Gowri with the name of Kamalaja, eulogised as a thirtha kshetra, visited by great rishis and saints, patronised by philantropists and embodying the sources of river Bhima, this holy yatrasthala has been visited by theists in their thousands for several centuries, specially from the day of Tripurantaka samhar.
