       LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI

The contest as it went on, became so dreadful that the earth trembled and Adisesha found it hard to holding it her on his head. The fiercest exchange of arms atlast ended with Tripura's three cities falling to pieces hit by the potent Trisul, heralding the death of Tripura. With the opening of the third eye of the Lord he was burnt in the flames. The exertion was so great that Bhimashankar sat down for a while with perspiration enveloping his whole body. At once all the gods hastened to thank Him for the greatest relief given and hailed his heroism. Pleased with their praises, he asked them what else they wished to be granted then and there. They with one voice prayed to the Lord to remain there in that form for adoration. And the streaming sweat should be converted into an eternal stream for bath. Flashing a smile he said 'Yes'. Thus emerged the adobe of Lord Siva on the Sahyadri and the river was called Bhima after Bhimashankar. And since then, they became indispensable objects of veneration. Just at this moment Lord Brahma offered worship to Mother Gouri for fighting fierely against Durghashsur, a demon of great physical prowess and asuric powers while her Lord was engaged in war with Tripurasura. Her attempts to smash him down with missiles mighty, like mace, spear, arrows when failed, she delivered a death blow on the stony chest of the asura, which cracking fell down with streams of blood flowing. The witnessing gods praised her mighty valour with utmost jubilation. Lord Brahma after due prayers requested her to stay here along with her Lord and she be known as Kamalaja in token of his worship with lotuses. She agreed and she is installed in a separate shrine lying next to that of her Lord Bhimashankar.
