PapNash Shiva temple - Bidar

On the trip to Bidar we visited PapNash Shiva temple.

The temple

Legend:
Legend goes that this idol was installed by Lord Sri Rama on his way back from Lanka to Ayodhya. It is said that till a couple of years ago, during the Shivratri festival snakes would visit the temple.

Main ShivaLinga

Puja:
Temple is usually crowded, since we went by 9 a.m. there wasn't much crowd. There is a big ShivaLinga in the sanatorium. There are three small Shivalingas in the temple complex. We were allowed to touch the ShivaLinga and perform puja for that. We took coconuts / flowers and incense sticks from the nearby stall. We got abhisheka done, it costed 51 Rs.

Three ShivaLingas in temple

Food:
There is nothing to eat around the place. The stalls nearby sell bottled water and cold drinks.

Travel:
There are no frequent buses to this spot. Easiest method was auto.
