Here you will get all the information about Travel Guide For Trimbakeshwar Temple In Nashik.

Not a lot of people can have known of Trimbakeshwar Temple as it has still to make it to this list of most popular religious destinations in India such as Shirdi, Tirupati Balaji, and Vaishno Devi. This travel guide to Trimbakeshwar helps you understand how to reach Trimbakeshwar, the best time to go, what to do and where to stay.

Located in the Nashik district of Maharashtra, Trimbakeshwar is popularly known as Trimbak. It is 30 km from Nashik. Trimbak is famous for the Trimbakeshwar Temple, which is one of the 12 jyotirlingas spread all over India(i.e. Somnath, Mallikarjuna, Mahakaleswar, Omkareshwar, Kedarnath, Bhimashankar, Kashi Viswanath, Vaidyanath Jyotirlinga, Nageswar, Rameshwar, Grishneshwar).

The temple town of Trimbak is also the source of the Godawari river that originates in the Brahmagiri Hills (hills can be seen in the backdrop of Trimbakeshwar Temple). There are the number of stories associated with the temple & how the area came to being as the source of the Godavari.

The short and sweet of it is that Rishi Gautama was able to stay here along with his wife Ahliya. A cow has been accidently killed by him when he threw a dharba at her (sharp, pointed grass), when she entered his field. To absolve of gao hatya (sin of killing a cow), he had been asked to have a dip in the sacred waters of the Ganges.

He then exhorted Lord Shiva to send the river Ganges on the ground, so he can atone for his sin. Lord Shiva relented but not before Gautama rishi and his wife had mediated for years. In the last, the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh descended and stayed here in the form of a linga, which is different from usual Shivlingas that you see in a temple.

Trimbakeshwar Temple

The temple is beautifully built in black stone. It had been constructed during the 17th century by Nanasaheb Peshwa. The temple presents a gorgeous sight at the background of Brahmagiri Hills.

Unlike most temples, the sanctum sanctorum (garbh griha) in Trimbakeshwar Temple is also approx. Three feet deep and a mirror was put above it, so that devotees could have darshan of this linga. Girls and Women’s aren’t allowed to enter the sanctum sanctorum. A man could enter just having a priest of this temple to get Rudra Abhisheka.

    Popular as one of the 12 Jyotirlinga temples in India, the Trimbakeshwar temple has its ardent devotees which pay a visit every few years. The temple is visited by devotees who want to complete their ‘Jyotirlinga yatra’, meaning paying a visit to all 12 temples which are spread across India. I happened to pay my respects during my Nashik trip, which is a day trip. I have a Trimbakeshwar temple visit guide from my personal experience.
