5 Jyotirlinga in Maharashtra Tour covers the 5 most important jyotirlinga temples that are located in the state of Maharashtra. We can also include Shirdi, Ajanta & Ellora in the tour plan upon request.
Jyotirlinga are shrines where Lord Shiva, is worshipped in the form of a Jyotirlingam. ‘Jyothi’ means ‘Radiance’ and ‘Lingam’ means ‘the mark or sign’ of The Almighty. Jyotir Lingam means the The Radiant sign of The Almighty. Lord Shiva first manifested himself as a Jyotirlinga on the night of the, Aridra Nakshatra thus the special reverence for the Jyotirlinga. There is nothing to distinguish the appearance, but it is believed that a person can see these lingas as columns of fire piercing through the earth after he reaches a higher level of spiritual attainment. There are 12 Jyotirlingas that are spread all over India.
5 Jyotirlinga in Maharashtra
Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga: It is believed that Trimbakeshwar is the holiest place of Hindu mythology. The most unique feature of the temple is that the Shiva Linga here has three faces of the three almighty Gods of Hindu mythology – Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara.

Bhimashankar Jyotirlinga: Lord Shiva appears as “Ardhanareeshwara” in this temple. River Bhima originates from here.

A holy dip in the river is believed to relieve ones of their sins. Engulfed with natural beauty the temple is also a perfect destination for trekkers, bird watchers, and photographers.
Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga: Located very near to the Ellora caves, this temple is the last of the 12 Jyotirlingas. For devotees who undertake the Jyotirlinga pilgrimage, a visit to this temple completes their journey.
Aundha Nagnath Jyotirlinga: This is considered to be the first Jyotirlinga where Shiva is worshipped. It is believed that the temple was built by Yudhisthira, the eldest Pandav, while they were in an exile for 14 years.
Parli Vaijnath Jyotirlinga: This temple is located in a village that is home to mountains and thick forests rich in medicinal herbs. Since the temple is amidst such a healing atmosphere, the Lord here is addressed as Vaidhyanath.
