about bhimashankar temple

Supposedly home to one of the 12 highly sacred Jyotirlinghas in India, Bhimashankar Temple is a revered religious site near Pune. According to Shiv Mahapuran, once Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma had a heated argument related to superiority of creation of the universe. To test them, Lord Shiva divided the 3 worlds into pillars of light and named them jyotirlinga. Both of them started downwards and upwards to find the end of this light. Lord Vishnu confessed his defeat that he couldn't find the end while Brahma lied that he was the first one to find the end. The one at Bhimshankar Temple is among the most auspicious jyotirlinga shrines. The temple itself is a fine example of architectural splendour of the 13th century. The premise has Sabhamandap and Shikhara as well which was constructed by Nana Phadnavis during the 18th century.

Awesome place for trekking and nature lovers. Would recommend to go after rainy season as the trek and nature reserve will be lush green and there will be less mud.
