Nageshwar Jyotirlinga Temple History

As per the Legend, There lived a demon couple Daruka and Daruki. Daruki was an ardent devotee of Goddess Parvati. Daruki imprisoned Siva Devotee Supriya at his Capital Darukavan. Supriya taught Siva Mantra to other devotees in the prison. Daruki who came to know about Supriya thought of killing him. Lord Siva appeared in the form of Jyoti and protected him without killing the demon.

Another interesting folklore attached to this temple, A group of Dwarf Saints worshipped Lord Siva. Lord Siva thought of testing their devotion appeared before the Saints in the nude with serpents covering the body. Saint wives got attracted and went with Lord Siva. Saints who got angered cursed Lord Siva to lose his Linga. Linga fell on the Earth and created tremors. Lord Vishnu along with Brahma requested Lord Siva to rescue the Earth. Lord Siva took back his Linga and self-manifested at Darukavan in Jyotirlinga.

The present form of the temple was reconstructed during recent times by T-Series owner Gulshan Kumar.
