Trimbakeshwar Shiva Temple, Nashik

4.4
An ancient and important Hindu site, Trimbakeshwar Shiva Temple draws worshippers from across the country. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple sits at the source of a long river, itself considered sacred in the Hindu world. One of the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva (where he reportedly appeared as a column of light), the complex features dark stone buildings carved in traditional Hemadpanthi style and dating back to the 18th century. Its centerpiece, a linga representing Brahma, Vishnu, and Rudra, bears a crown of precious jewels, displayed briefly once a week. The central pool that flows into the river has been surrounded by arched verandas, where families of worshippers wait to cleanse themselves in the sacred water.

    Very ancient stone made monument. Very crowdie when we went there. bags are not allowed to take into the temple at the same time no facility provided by the temple. We had to keep in a private facility and had to pay a lot of money for that. Took 2 hours to come out of the temple. But a great place to visit.

    Best place to visit and avoided during Kumbh Mela, as the entry into temple takes 1 day waiting in Queue.

    Best place. But if you are going in summer, beware of the heat! We have to walk on burning floor to reach the main temple and it is painful! Plan your trip after October
