Ghrishneshwar Jyotirlinga shrine, in Aurangabad Maharashtra, is located near the rock-cut temples of Ellora.

LOCATION

Shri Ghrishneshwar Jyotirlinga is situated at Devagiri near Ellora. This Jyotirlinga of Lord Shiva is known by many names here like Kusumeswarar, Ghushmeswara, Grushmeswara, and Grishneswara.

STORY

There once lived a devout Brahmin & his wife. He was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. Unfortunately he was not blessed with a son. At the advice of his family, he got married to Kusuma, in order to give him a son. Kusuma was an even greater devotee of Lord Shiva. Everyday she would make one Shiva Linga, worship it and then immerse it in the temple tank. Soon she was blessed with boy baby. The first wife was very jealousy & ill-treated Kusuma. Putting all her faith in the Lord, Kusuma accepted all the sufferings humbly. When the boy grew older, they planned his wedding. The first wife took an opportunity and killed the boy. Kusuma was deeply mournful, yet did not stop her daily worship of Lord Shiva. She continued to make the Lingam, worshipped & immersed it in the tank. To the surprise of one and all, her son rose out of the water one day, coming back to life. This Jyotirlinga is supposed to exist in two places, one at Devagiri near Ellora & the other at the Kailasa temple at Ellora.
