Shri Jwaleshwar Mahadev is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, one of the Gods of the Hindu triumvirate.
It is situated 10 kms away from the town of Amarkantak and towards the north-east of the Narmada Temple. The legend behind the formation of this temple states that when Lord Shiva killed the selfish demon Tripurasura into three pieces, one of the three parts fell near the Narmadakund, which later on turned into the seat of Lord Shiva. This temple houses a black Shiva lingam which is known as Jwaleshwar Mahadev. Another piece of trivia is that Lord Shiva and Parvati lived here because of the resplendence of the place.
