Shiva is one of the most favourite Indian Gods. Mostly because He's not the usual God and had his own rules and rituals.
Since childhood we have been hearig and reading all mythological stories about Shiva and the 12 Jyotirlingas.
But I bet there are many of us who don't know what these Jyotirlingas signify. In fact, some of you might not even know all their names.
The 12 Jyotirlingas are as follows: Somnath in Gujarat, Mallikarjuna at Srisailam in Andhra Pradesh, Mahakaleswar at Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, Omkareshwar in Madhya Pradesh, Kedarnath in Uttrakhand, Bhimashankar at Pune in Maharashtra, Viswanath at Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, Tryambakeshwar at Nashik in Maharashtra, Vaijyanath Temple in Deoghar District of Jharkhand, Aundha Nagnath at Aundha in Hingoli District in Maharashtra, Rameshwar at Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu and Grushneshwar at Ellora near Aurangabad, in Maharashtra.
On the occasion of Mahashivratri, we give you a tour of the 12 Jyotirlingas and their significance.
