Abodes of Shiva (Kashi Temples)



Lord Shiva was narrating the various sacred Teerths (Ponds), Koop (Wells) and places of worship in Kashi.  Lord Shiva described such places with pleasure (Kashi Khand, Chapter 97). In the vicinity of Madhyameshwar is the Aapa Stambeshwar Ling. By worshipping this Ling, the devotee is blessed with Brahma Gyan (ultimate knowledge).  In the present day context, this may be taken as good education/studies.


Aapa Stambeshwar is located at K-53/66, Dara Nagar. People can approach this temple by rickshaw through Bisheshwarganj/GPO and walk through the locality of Madhyameshwar temple.  The landmark for this temple is a well and Boodhwa Baba temple (Hanuman). The temple is open throughout the day. People can perform pooja as per their convenience with sacred Ganges water and flowers etc.
