about grishneshwar jyotirlinga temple

Compact and unassuming, the Grishneshwar Temple’s outward appearance belies its religious and historical significance. The stone edifice rises in distinct bands of friezes — rust, pink and pale yellow. Devotees first halt at the small shrine to Kokila Mata upon entering the Ghrishneshwar Temple. She keeps her hand over her ear to hear their arrival, and tells Shiva that his devotee has arrived. In the sabha mandap, which is supported by 16 carved columns, a huge idol of Nandi faces the linga. The doors of the shrine are covered in sheets of silver etched with images of Shiva.

The inner sanctum of Grishneshwar is an underground chamber. At noon, pink-turbanned musicians in the nagaarkhana (a wooden structure with pillared balconies and stone steps leading up to it) launch into a bhajan. As the strains of ‘Om Jai Jagdish’, of pipe and drum, fill the air, as the priest rings his silver bell and swirls the sacred fire, as the devout fall silent in awe, Ghrishneshwar becomes magical.
