Since from childhood we are connected to Indian mythology, We ought to learn many important aspects in our day to day life. Visiting Pilgrimage and knowing about all this is itself fascinating isn't it?

History of Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga :- There are 12 Jyotirlinga and the one of them is Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga. Jyotirlinga means ‘column or pillar of light’. The ‘stambha’ symbol represents that there is no beginning or end.

Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga that not only honours Lord shiva, but also Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma.

The reason and these great stories behind building Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga are easily available. This Shiva temple was built by Prime Minister of the Maratha Empire, Peshwa Balaji Baji Rao, also known as Nana Saheb, in the mid-18th century. The entire temple is made up of black stone and carved beautifully which makes us believe that how talented those artisans were. Once you come across don't rush yourself stay for while and observe those small and unique work which is done. You will thank god that you were born in India :)
