Trimbakeshwar Shiva Temple as the name suggests is dedicated in honour of Lord Shiva, the much revered Hindu deity. It is an ancienttemple known for its historic and mythological relevance. It is located in the town of Trimbak in the Nashik district of Maharashtra. It is located at the source of the river Godavari, the longest river in the Indian peninsula. The current temple was built by Peshwa Balaji Baji Rao.
This temple is steeped in mythology, folklore and history. It has one of the famous twelve jyotirlingas. The unique feature of this jyotirlinga is that it represents the three faces of three Hindu deities: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, while the other jyotirlingas represent Lord Shiva only.The linga is adorned with a jewelled crown that is said to have existed since the days of the Pandavas. It is a rich filigree of diamonds and emeralds. In the recent past, the linga seems to have eroded due to the use of water, and common belief has it that this erosion is a result of the loss of morality in the world.
The current temple was commissioned to be constructed by Peshwa Nanaseb (1720 – 1761), also known as Balaji Baji Rao. It is a basalt-based piece of architecture designed in the Hemadpanthi style. The world-famous Nassak diamond belonged to this temple from 1500 – 1897. During the Third Anglo-Maratha War, the diamond came into the hands of the British East India Company and they sold it to the erstwhile British jewellery firm, Rundell and Bridge. This piece of diamond was later resized, and it became part of the dress sword of the 1st Marquess of Westminster. This much-coveted diamond changed hands once again to reach Harry Winston and then Edward J. Hand.
The Trimbakeshwar Shiva temple offers religious rituals or pujas including Narayan Nagbali, Kalsarpa Shanti and Pitra Dosh Puja.
