History of Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga Temple

Trimbakeshwar, near Nashik, is dedicated to Lord Shiva and one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in India. This ancient temple is highly revered and among the most visited religious sites in India. The name of this temple is also part of the all-powerful Mahamrityunjaya Mantra. The sacred Godavari river’s source is in the Brahmagiri hills near the temple.

A pilgrimage since the Vedic ages, the temple as seen today was built by the Peshwa rulers in the 18th century in the classic architectural style. The Kushavarta Kund (sacred pond) on the temple premises was built by the rulers of Indore. This temple has a unique Shivling with the faces of the Trimurti – Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh. This is not seen in any of the other Jyotirling temples.

The Trimbakeshwar Jyotirling has its own unique importance among the twelve Jyotirling of India. Devotees come here not only for darshan but also to perform certain pujas that alleviate life’s difficulties. Trimbakeshwar temple is also well known for the various pujas done by devotees such as various Kaal Sarp pujas and Pind Daan rituals.

Earlier the Kumbh Mela used to be held here in Trimbakeshwar, but after a clash in 1789 between Vaishnavs and Shaivites over precedence for bathing, the Peshwa shifted the Vaishnava’s bathing site to  Ram Kund in Nashik. The Shaivites regard Trimbakeshwar as the proper Mela site.
