INFORMATION ABOUT BHIMASHANKAR
Bhimashankar Temple is located in the village of Bhorgiri 50 km north west of Khed, near Pune, in India. It is located 110 km away from Pune in the Ghat region of the Sahyadri hills. Bhimashankar is also the source of the Bhima river, which flows south east and merges with the Krishna river near Raichur. The other Jyotirlinga shrines in Maharashtra are Tryambakeshwar and Grishneshwar.
Though the Jyotirlinga has existed there since time immemorial, it was rediscovered around 1350 AD. A woodcutter once struck a tree there and it began to spout blood. He brought his cow to that spot and milked it. When the milk fell on the cut tree the bleeding stopped. Next day a Shiva Linga appeared where the tree stood. The woodcutter erected a small shrine over the Linga and devotees began to flock to worship there.
