In the morning, after eating breakfast we board an auto to visit Daksheshwar Mahadev Mandir which is situated in South Kankhal, Haridwar.
Daksheshwar Mahadev Mandir is the Sasural of Lord Mahadev. Daksh Prajapati was the father of Shiv Ji’s wife Sati Mata. Shiv Ji is believed to reside in this temple in the month of Savan. This Daksha Mahadev Mandir is built at the exact place at which Daksh Prajapati performed Yagya in the Yagya Kund. At this Yagya Kund, Sati Mata self-immolated herself with her own inner strength because of repeated insults thrown at Shiv Ji by Sati Mata’s father Daksh Prajapati. This is the same spot at which Shiv Ji’s Gana, Virbhadra decapitated Daksh and then Shiv Ji himself placed a sacrificial goat’s head on Daksh’s body, after forgiving him.
If you want to read the whole story then please search Om Swami Ji’s book “KUNDALINI: an untold story” on google right now. A preview of the book by google books will come at the top in search results. Click on it and read from ‘Kundalini: The Beginning’ until the section ‘The Birth Of Parvati’ comes. Swami Ji has beautifully explained the whole story.
After taking the Darshan and paying our obeisance to Shiv Ji, we get going towards our hotel by boarding an auto. Then, we collect our luggage and checkout from the hotel after saying goodbye to the manager. We board a bus back to Saharanpur and reach there in two hours.
