Abodes of Shiva (Kashi Temples)



According to Kashi Khand, Chapter 69, the place where Lord Shiva wore the skin of Gajasur after slaying the latter, was called Rudra Vasam. (Kindly refer to Krithi Vaseshwar). Once the Lord, in his form as Krithi Vaseshwar, was sitting alongwith Goddess Uma Devi when Nandi offered his prayers and stated that there are 68 places of worship dedicated to Lord Shiva in this holy place. Various idols/Shiv Lings have been brought from several other places by Nandi and installed in Kashi.  From Gandamadan Mountains one Shiv Ling has appeared by itself in Kashi, by name of Bhoor Bhuva Suva Ling. Devotees who worship this Ling will be extremely happy in various parts of heaven.


Bhoor Bhuva Suva Ling is located at No. K.63/26, Bhoot Bhairav locality. This is a huge Ling. Devotees can reach this place by travelling upto Kashi Devi temple/Bula Nala/Lohatia by rickshaw and walk on foot upto Jyeshta Gauri/Bhoot Bhairav. The temple is open practically throughout the day.  Devotees can have darshan or perform pooja on their own as per their convenience.
