Travel Guide to Holy Destination Triyambakeshwar, Maharashtra, India

Trimbak @Foothills of Bramhagiri Mountain

 

Just about 180 kilometres away from Mumbai, there is an amazing tranquil place named Trimbak or Triyambakeshwar in the foothill of Bramhagiri, a part of Sahyadri mountain. The main attraction of this place is an ancient Hindu temple, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is believed that anybody who visits Tryambakeshwar attains salvation. It is also said that there is no sacred place like Tryambakeshwar, no river like Godavari and no mountain like Brahmagiri.

It is one of the secret seats of Lord Shiva (one among the twelve jyotirlingams). Godavari river after originating at Bramhagiri mountain meets the sea near Raj Mahendri, in Andhra Pradesh.

The reasons for itís being so sacred are that the place where Godavari river originates is known as Tri-Sandhya Gayatri, the birthplace of Lord Ganesha. It is also the birthplace of the first Nath of the Nath sect consisting of Gorakhnath and others.

Nirnaya Sindhu - a religious book of Hindus, mentions that this place, where Sahyadri mountain and Godavari river exist is the most pristine place on the earth. The first place in the plain where Godabari can be seen is at Kusavarta. It is in the form of a pond (Kunda) and revered by Hindus as a sacred bathing place.

Here at Triyambakeshwar the jyotirligam is in the form of Lord Dattatreya. Instead of one, there are three lingams in the main shrine, which is of the size of a thumb. These lingams have emerged naturally and the river waters flow over them.

The entire black stone temple is known for its appealing architecture and sculpture.
The construction work of the present temple of Trimbakeshwar was started by Shrimant Balaji Bajirao alias Nana sahib Peshawe in 1755 and was completed in 1786 at a cost of Rs 16 lakhs.

Appealing Architecture & Sculpture

 

The temple is built in the Hemadpanthi style of architecture and the construction was carried out by using locally available blackstone and limestone. One of the ministers of Ahmednagar was Hemadpanth who popularized this typical architectural style.

Earlier the entire Brahmagiri was considered as a huge form of Lord Shiva and hence the mountain climbing was prohibited. However, in 1908 Seth Lalchand Jashodanand Bhambhani of Karachi and Seth Ganeshdas built 500 stone steps at a cost of Rs 40,000.

This facilitated easy access to Brahmagiri. Similarly the large area of Kushavarta was developed by Shreemant Rao Sahib Parnekar. He beautified the banks with permanent stone pavement and covered verandas on all sides.

Other Attractions Anjaneri Mountain, which is just 7 km from Trimbakeshwar, is the birthplace of Lord Hunuman.

The Trimabakeshwar town has also good number of traditional Brahmin houses, which hold gurukuls. There are also ashrams devoted to Ashtanga Yoga - the Hindu art of living. It is also the birthplace of noted filmmaker and father of Indian cinema, Dadasaheb Phalke.

Best time to visit The best time to visit Trimbakeshwar is during the monsoon.

How to get there The nearest Airport is at Nasik (39 km). Nearest railhead is at Nasik Road (44 km) on Central Railway. State Transport buses ply between Mumbai-Nasik-Trimbakeshwar frequently.
