It is another one among the ’12 jyotirlinga’, and several literary creations include a beautiful description of this city. It homes one form of Lord Shiva, Rudra or god of the welfare of innocent and destruction of evil. The temple is famous for its two rituals- Shayan Aarti and Bhasma Aarti. The Shayan aarti is performed late at night covering the ceremonies performed by the priests before God retires to sleep. Whereas the Bhasma aarti is opposite, it is done before the break of dawn where the God of destruction is bathed in ash remains of people after which the Linga is dressed up and opens for the devotees to see.
