Mahamrityunjaya Temple

Mahamrityunjaya Temple, Jageshwar Overview

Shiva is believed to be the savior and redeemer of all his devotees, even delivering them from death, or as in Hindu mythology, the ruler of the underworld, Yamraj, who collects the souls of the deceased from the terrestrial realm.

Mahamrityunjay, is made from three words. Maha, meaning great, mrityun, meaning death, and jaya, meaning victory. Hence the word itself literally translates to the great victory over death. This temple hence, has a great many number of devotees, visiting the lingam (the stone idol representing he God), perched between the opening of an eye. The temple is ever reverberating with the chants of Mahamrityunjay Mantra, and the deity is believed to grant all wishes when worshipped with true devotion. The idol itself, is one of a kind carving, with no similar representation anywhere in the country.
