Hinduism - Where Is Velur In India?

 



Village in the Aurangabad district of the state of Maharashtra, a few miles from the cave temples at Ellora.

The shrine to the deity Shiva in his guise as Ghrneshvar, the "Lord of Compassion," is located in Velur.

The Ghrneshvar linga is one of the twelve jyotirlingas, a network of sites deemed especially sacred to Shiva and at which Shiva is uniquely present.

Shiva is pre sent at this temple in the form of a linga, the pillar-shaped image that is his symbolic form, and the Ghrneshvar linga is one of the twelve jyotirlingas, a network of sites deemed especially sacred to Shiva.
