Nageshwar Temple, Dwarka in Gujarat is home to the Nageshwar Jyotirlinga temple. However, the term "daruka vane" in the shloka (religious verse) for Nageshwar has also been interpreted for Jageshwar, also situated in the Himalaya. Daruka vane means deodar forest.

LOCATION

Shri Nageshwarnath Jyotirlinga is situated near Dwaraka, on the way to Beti Dwaraka. According to Puranas, there once lived a demon Daruka, who used to torture and bother the people of that place. One day Supriya who was a merchant reached Darukavanam. He was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. Daruka and his wife Daruki tried to kill Supriya who was now acting as a savior to these people. Supriya however had full faith is his devotion to the Lord and was unmoved by any torture. Lord Shiva was pleased by Supriya's devotion and appeared and killed the demon Daruka. Daruki, Daruka's wife, now started giving even more trouble than her husband. Shiva didn't take any mercy on her and vanquished her too and gives darshan to his devotees at this place as Nageshwar. The Nageswara Jyotirlingam is supposed to exist in 3 places in Dwaraka, in Audhgram, near Almora in Uttar Pradesh. The Shivalingam is facing South, with the Gomugam facing East. There is a story behind this position. A Lord Shiva devotee named Naamdev was singing bhajans in front of the Lord. Other devotees annoyed asked him to stand aside and not hide the Lord. To this Naamdev asked them to suggest one direction in which the Lord does not exist, so that he could stand there. The furious devotees took him and left him on the south side. To their surprise, they found that the Jyotirlinga was now facing South with the Gomugam facing East.
