Trimbakeshwar temple Nashik

Trimbakeshwar temple Nashik

As per the Legend, Lord Siva came to this place because of a curse from Lord Brahma. During Lingodbhava, Lord Brahma in the form Swan went up into the space to discover the head part and Lord Vishnu in the form of boar dug the earth to find the tail part of the Cosmic flame. Years passed by but neither was able to go anywhere near the objective. Brahma lost his patience and decided to play a trick upon Vishnu. He went back and reported that he had at last discovered Siva's head. He cited Ketaki tree and Cow as the witnesses. Angered Siva cursed Brahma that he would not be worshipped by anybody thenceforth. The creator was indignant and gave a counter-curse that Siva would be hurled down to the Earth and would stay there in the form of a mountain. This mountain is none other than Brahmagiri and is also called by Tryambak which means three-eyed Giri. After the initial wave of anger had passed a reconciliation took place and Siva associated the name of Brahma.
