Aundha Nagnath Temple (औंढा नागनाथेश्वर देउळ) is an ancient Shiva temple, considered to be one of the Jyotirlinga, located at Aundha Nagnath in Hingoli district of Maharashtra, India. Aundha Nagnath is supposed to be the eighth of the twelve jyotirlingams in India, but there's a debate regarding the location of actual Nageshwar Jyotirlinga temple referred in the Dwadasha Jyotirlinga Sloka of Sri Sankaracharya. Nageshwar temple near Dwarka, Gujarat is also considered as the Jyotirlinga. Identifying the Jyotirlinga of Nageswaram remains difficult. Since there are no other important clues in the text as to the location of the Jyotirlinga , 'Darukavana' remains the vital, and only, clue. Because of this the 'Jageswara' temple in Almora, Uttarakhand is commonly identified as Nageshvara Jyotirlinga. There's another Jyothirlinga temple, Parli Vaijnath Jyotirlinga temple, located a 70km away from Parbhani, which is also in controversy regarding the actual reference in Dwadash Jyotirlinga Sloka by Sankaracharya as the Vaidyanath Jyotirlingam.
