Nasik

Nov 6th        Breakfast in Mumbai and depart for Tryambakeshwara Templ in Nasik Temple

On the way to Shirdi we will stop in Nasik and visit a famous temple where the Tryambakeshwara Shiva Lingam resides and is worshipped. This temple is one of the 12 Jyothir Shiva Lingams, the holiest and most powerful temples of Shiva. This temple is unique in that the Shiva Lingam here is one of a kind as it is created from three lingams, each one representing one of the three aspects of God (Brahma, the Generator; Vishnu, the Operator; and Shiva, the Destroyer). This Shiva lingam is Svayumbhu, which means self created, i.e. it is not man-made.
