About Bhavnath Mahadev temple

The Bhavnath Mahadev temple is a shrine ensconced in myths and legends of the Puranic era. The Shiva linga here is said to have emerged of its own divine intention. Reportedly, when Shiva and Parvati were traveling over the Girnar Hills their divine garment fell over the present Mrigi Kund, making this place an auspicious site for lord Shiva worshippers. Even today, the naga bavas are known to bathe in the holy Mrigi Kund before joining the Mahashivaratri procession. The fair itself is so ancient that its precise origins are unknown.

The Bhavnath Mahadev Temple is located in the Junagadh District which is in Gujarat State of India. Other attractions include Damodar Kund, Mrugi Kund, Sudarshan Talav.
