Abodes of Shiva (Kashi Temples)

Daksheswar Temple


Lord Shiva was narrating 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 Mrityunjeshwar is the Daksheshwar Ling. By worshipping this Ling, the devotee is cleansed of all sins committed by him knowingly or unknowingly. In the vicinity of the Ling is Kalodak Koop (Well). The water from the well is capable of curing all diseases.


Daksheshwar is located at K-52/39, Vriddha Kal.  People can approach this temple by rickshaw through Bisheshwarganj/GPO. The temple is open from 04.00 a.m. to 12.00 midnight for worship.  People can perform pooja as per their convenience with sacred Ganges water and flowers etc.
