Legends of Kanwar Yatra


According to mythological belief, it is said that when the sea churning was taking place between the Gods and the Asura. Then there were 14 gems coming out of that churn. There was a poison with those fourteen gems, which threatened to destroy the universe.

Then Lord Shiva drank that poison to protect the universe and did not let it down from his throat. Mahadev's neck became blue with the influence of poison, and that's why he got the name Nilkantha. It is said that Ravana was the true devotee of Shiva. He brought the Ganges in the canvas and by the same water he anointed Shivlinga and then Lord Shiva attained liberation from this poison.
