Parsuram Kshetra is also known by the name Bhairo ka Math (temple). It is called Parsuram Kshetra (place) as Lord Parsuram is said to have lived here for sometime and did penance. The deity here is lord Shiva. Behind the linga (idol), are pictures of lord Shiva and Shiva – Parvati in tiles on the wall.

Outside also there is a Shiva linga near a pond. River Banas which flows through Kumbhalgarh, is said to have originated here. I was told this pond never goes dry. However, during my visit there, I saw river Banas was almost dry.

It is also called Bhairo ka Math as there is also a Bhairo devi temple on the left hand side of the compound. I was told coronation of the Mewar kings used to take place here.

Little away from here, my driver showed a cave on the face of a rock and myth has it that it was Parsuram’s.

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
