Devotees come from far and wide to Jageshwar Dham located in Almora, Uttarakhand. This temple of Lord Shiva is considered to be one of the 12 Jyotirlingas, but there are differences of opinion about it. Jagatguru Adi Shankaracharya had visited this place. The description of Jageshwar Dham is found in mythology. At the same time, this temple has also been mentioned in Shiva Purana, Linga Purana, and Skanda Purana.
There are 125 small and big temples in Jageshwar Dham. Every day a large number of devotees come here. There is also a belief here that women who do not have children, come to the Mahamrityunjay temple of Jageshwar and ask for the wishes of children and Bholenath fills their bags with happiness. The priest of the temple told that women pray for children by holding a lamp in front of the Mahamrityunjaya temple. This puja is performed on special occasions like Shiva Chaturdashi, Sawan month, and Mahashivratri.
Although there are many deodar trees on the premises of the Jageshwar temple, there is also a tree in which the family of Lord Shiva can be seen. This deodar tree is called Ardhanarishvara. The shape of Lord Shiva, Mother Parvati, and her son Ganesha are seen in this tree.
