6 மணி நேரம் மட்டுமே கண்களுக்கு தெரியும் அ&#298

6 மணி நேரம் மட்டுமே கண்களுக்கு தெரியும் அதிசய சிவாலயம். பஞ்ச பாண்டவர்கள் வழிபட்டதன் நினைவாக இந்த ஆலயத்தில் 5 சிவலிங்கங்கள் அமைந்துள்ளன. கடல் நடுவே மேட்டு நிலத்தை உருவாக்கி, சிவலிங்கம் அமைத்து வழிபடுகின்றனர். இதில் மகிழ்ந்த சிவபெருமான், அவர்களது களங்கத்தைப் போக்குகிறார். பாண்டவர்களது களங்கத்தைப் போக்கியதால், “நிஷ்களங்க மகாதேவர்’ என அழைக்கப்படுகிறார். பாண்டவர்கள் போற்றிய லிங்கங்கள், வெட்டிய குளம், கொடிமரம் எல்லாம் அங்கே இன்றும் காட்சி தருகின்றன.

Where is this located
Nishkalank Mahadev Temple in Koliyak, Bhavnagar, Gujarat is full of wonders and awe. This temple is

buried inside the sea. On a heavy tide day, all that can be seen are the flag and a pillar. It is beyond ones

comprehension that there is a Lord Shiva Temple just under the fierce sea. This temple is still in use, and

people visit this place on foot! The temple has 5 distinct swayumbu Shiva lingams inside. This is definitely

one of the best spiritual destinations!

The following temple story dates back to Mahabaratha era. Pandavas killed all the Kuravas and won the

battle. Pandavas were grief stricken knowing they acquired sins for killing their own relatives. In order to

find redemption for their sins, Pandavas met Lord Krishna. To remove the sins, Krishna hands over a black

Flag and a Black COW. He asks the Pandavas to follow it, when both Cow and flag turns white, they all will

be pardoned. Krishna also advises them to do penance to lord Shiva, after that. The angst stricken brothers

followed the cow wherever it went and carried the flag. They walked for days, to different places and the

color did not change. Finally, when they arrived at the Koliyak Beach, both cow and the flag color turned to

white. Pandavas were exalted. And all the 5 brothers sat for deep penance, meditated on lord Shiva.

Lord Shiva impressed by the brothers showed up in lingam form to each brother. As they meditated, each

lingam appeared in front of each brother. In total there were 5 (Swayumbu) lingams that showed up on their

own. Pandavas were delighted to see this and they worshiped all the five lingams with great devotion. Lord

Shiva here is known as Nishkalan Mahadev. ‘Nishkalank’ has many meaning they are clean, pure, guiltless, to

cleanse, to purify, etc. It is said that Pandavas established Nishkalank or Nakalank Mahadev on a Amavasai of

the Indian calendar month of Bhadarva. The famous fair popularly known as ‘Bhadarvi’ is held on the no moon

night in month of Sharvan (August), as per the Indian calendar. An idol of Lord Shiva was established in an

island, over the sea about 3 km to the east of Koliyak. Each lingam has a Nandhi facing it. The lingams are

spread across a square Platform. There is a pond called Pandavas pond and devotees’ first wash their hands

and legs and only then they visit the Lord Shivas shrines.
