Tarkeshwar Mahadev

TARKESHWAR MAHADEV

Tarkeshwar Mahadev   has  been  mentioned in the ‘Puranas’.  As  per the legend,  a  huge  kund (pond)  was  dug  by  a  giant  demon named ‘Tarak’, who  was  killed  by  Lord Shiva.  From that  time, the  place got  its  name as  ‘Tarakeshwar Mahadev’. There are many ‘Shivalingas’ near the Kunda and there is also a Lakshmi pond nearby dedicated to Hindu Goddess Lakshmi.
