Hinduism - Who Is Bhimashankar?

 










Bhimashankar (Bhima's Shiva) is a Hindu god. 




One of the twelve jyotirlingas, a collection of sacred places (tirthas) dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva. 


  • Both the location and the presiding god are known as Bhimashankar. 
  • It is named after the source of the Bhima River, which is situated in Maharashtra's Pune district. 




Bhimashankar, unlike many of the other jyotirlingas, receives little year-round attention due to its remote location and inaccessibility. 


  • The Shivaratri celebration, which typically takes place in February or March, attracts the most pilgrims.
