According to Chef Mahapuran, Brahma (the god of Hindu creation) and Vishnu (the Hindu god of protection) had once discussed creation.  To test it, Shiva traversed the three worlds like an endless huge column of light, the jyotirlinga. Vishnu and Brahma parted to look up and up, respectively, to find the end of the light in either direction. Brahma lied, saying he had discovered where it ended, while Vishnu admitted defeat. Shiva appeared as the second pillar of the light and Brahma cursed because he had no place in the ceremonies, while Vishnu was worshiped until the end of immortality. Jyotirlinga is the ultimate fact without parts, from which Shiva appears partially. Consequently, the sites of Geotherlinga are places where Shiva appeared as a pillar of burning light.

There are 64 forms of Shiva, which should not be confused with Jyotirlingas. Each of the twelve jyotirlinga sites takes its name from the main deity, and each considers a different appearance of Shiva. [4] In all these locations, the main image is lingam representing the Stambha column without beginning and without end, symbolizing the endless nature of Shiva. [4] [5] [6] Twelve jyotirlingas are Somnath in Gujarat, Mallikarjuna in Srisailam in Andhra Pradesh, Mahakaleswar in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, Omkareshwar in Madhya Pradesh, Kedarnath in Himalayan Mountains, Bhsmshankar in Maharashtra State, In Paraty, in the state of Thirat, in the state of Maharashtra in Rajasthan in Jharkhand, Nagyeshvara Geutrelenga in Dwarka in Gujarat, Rameshwar in Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu and Grishneshwar in Maharashtra.
Architectural Engineering
Bhimashankar Temple is a complex of old and new structures in Nagara architectural style. Excellence in skills attained by ancient sculptors from Vishwakarma is demonstrated. It is a modest but elegant temple and dates back to the 13th century, while sabha mandap was built in the eighteenth century by Nana Vadnavis. El Shakara was built by Nana Bhadnavis. The great Maratha governor, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, is said to have made contributions to this temple to facilitate worship services. As with other Shiva temples in this area, the shrine is at a lower level.

Although the structure here is somewhat new, the Bhimashankaram Mausoleum (and the Bhimarathi River) has been mentioned in literature dating back to the 13th century. Saint Jinanshwar is said to have visited Triampakishwar and Himachankar. A unique bell (Roman style) can be seen in front of the temple. This bell has a fetish of mother Mary with Jesus. This great bell was introduced by Chimaji Appa (Brother of Bajirao Peshwa I and uncle of Nanasaheb Peshwa). On May 16, 1739, Chimaji Appa collected five large bells after winning a war against the Portuguese from Fort Vasai. One is shown here in Bhimashankar and the others in Menavali near Wai in front of Shiva Temple on the banks of Krishna River, Banshanker Temple (Pune), Omkareshwar Temple (Pune) and Ramalinga Temple (Shirur).
