       LORD TRYAMBAKESHWAR OF NASIK

If resorted to, the consequence - reprehension or annihilation is certain. More than humans, the celestials offer countless examples of notoriety it caused and disasters it thrust upon them, when fallen victims to it. Suffice it is, if one is singled out from the lives the Trimurthis to exemplify its impact with an immobile monumental evidence found near Tryambak - a township near Nasik in Maharashtra. It testifies to the severity of its evil effect. It further publishes the calamitous consequences of unbridled anger, if directed against anyone for that matter, for any purpose, even. Here Lord Siva is abiding along with the Lord Creator - for befriending himself to the abnoxious lair and Brahma for falling victim to lie.

The origin of the Tryambakeshwar temple, and emergence of the Barhmagiri hill in the township of Tryambak near Nasik have a fantastic background and awe-some legend. The temple enshrines one of the dwadasa jyotirlingas and has a long history of its own. And it commands veneration by virtue of possessing several unique features that have been drawing theists in large numbers since time immemorial. It is here Sage Gautama was absolved of his sin by bathing in the Ganga, brought to Brahmagiri by Siva; it is to this kshetra all the gods come once in every twelve years; it is here Ganga turns its course due to placing a blade of dharbha by Gautama and took the name of Gautami or Godavari; it is in the vicinity of this thirtha kshetra there lies Panchavati, where Sri Rama lived when in exile; it is here exist several ancient temples housing many gods.
