Badkeshwar Shiv Temple
Badkeshwar Shiv Temple Five thousand years ago, a Shivalinga was revealed in the Arabian Sea, today we knowns as Shri Bhadkeshwar Mahadev Mandir. Built on the very edges of Dwarka is a Badkeshwar Shiv Temple. Badkeshwar Shiv Temple Dedicated to Lord Shiva is 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. In the month of June/July, the ocean itself perform abhishekam the Shivling, and for some time this temple becomes the part of the ocean.
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 Bhadkeshwar Mahadev 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.
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.
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 houses more than twelve 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.
