Launch on a sacred journey with Shivshankar Tirth Yatra's exclusive Bhimashankar Jyotirlinga Temple Darshan Tour Packages. The ancient legend of Bhimashankar unveiled a tale from the Tretayug when a demon named Tripurasura performed intense penance in the jungle of Bhimashankar to please Lord Shiva and obtain the gift of immortality.
Impressed by Tripurasura's unwavering devotion, Lord Shiva, known for his benevolence towards his devotees, granted him immortality, but with a condition. The condition was that Tripurasura must use his powers for the welfare of the people, failing which he would face severe consequences.
As time passed, Tripurasura forgot the condition imposed upon him and began tormenting people and deities. Chaos ensued, and all the gods sought refuge with Lord Shiva, seeking a solution to this menace.
To end Tripurasura's tyranny, Lord Shiva sought the assistance of Goddess Parvati, also known as Kamalaja Mata. Together, they assumed a new form known as "Ardha-Narya-Nateshwar" and vanquished Tripurasura on Kartik Pournima, now celebrated as "Tripurari Purnima."
After Tripurasura's demise, his wives, Dakini and Shakini, approached Lord Shiva, questioning their existence without their husbands. In response, Lord Shiva blessed them with the power of immortality, similar to the boon granted to Tripurasura. Henceforth, the realm of Bhimashankar became known as "Dakinyam Bhimashankaram."
