About Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple in Dwarka

Built on the very edges of Dwarka is a Shaivite Temple of absolute bliss and rapture. Located on a hillock on the Arabian Sea to the extreme west of Dwarka, the Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple is quite close to Geeta Temple and Rukshamanee Temple. There are very few words to describe the ethereal beauty of the Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple. With a well-built path leading up to the hillock from the shore and stairs leading straight to the temple itself, accessing this temple is rarely an issue. As it is built off the shore, the ebb and flow of ocean water flood the surroundings of the temple as well the path leading up to it. This is not really much of a hindrance, but rather adds to the beauty of it all.

Every Hindu temple has some governing deity after whom the temple is named. The Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple is no different and its presiding deity is known as Chandra-Moulishwar Shiva. The confluence of River Gomati, River Ganga, and the Arabian Seainspired Acharya Jagadguru Shankaracharya to realize the form of Lord Shiva known as Chandra-Moulishwar. This possibly what led to the construction and fame of Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple. Shaivite temples are revered all over India as Lord Shiva is believed to be the Destroyer of Evil. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva delivers His devotees from all troubles and distress by presenting a unique solution. Praying to Lord Chandra-Moulishwar Shiva in Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple is a deeply spiritual experience.

Although the Chandra-Moulishwar form of Lord Shiva is the governing deity of Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple, it is not the only form of Lord Shiva depicted in the temple. It housesmore thantwelve hundred Shalgramshilas, thirteen hundred Shiva Lingas, and metal statuette forms of seventy-five Shankaracharyas. Shalgramshilas are priceless holy gemstones that are believed to be the earthly manifestations of Lord Vishnu and a single touch of a Shalgramshila is said to wipe away all mortal sins. To any devotee of Lord Shiva, Darshan of Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple, or seeing the temple is a lifelong dream. On Maha Shivratri, this temple hosts a fair that is famous all across India and thousands of people travel to this very spot to seek blessings from Lord Shiva.

Religious quests and piety aside, Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Temple is also famed for its architecture. Despite being a small temple, it houses several holy artifacts that are considered priceless. Also, amidst pure natural beauty, it is a commendable feat to have something as simple as a pathway to a hillock look as beautiful as it does.
