Srikhand Mahadev is one of the abodes of Lord Shiva and is considered a place of pilgrimage for Hindus. Shrikhand Mahadev is located in the Himachal Pradesh state of India. This place is an important place for the devotees of Lord Shiva. Its journey is called ‘Shrikhand Mahadev Kailash Yatra’. This journey is done every year in the month of Sawan. The trek of this journey is considered to be one of the most difficult treks of India. Situated on the hill, this Shivling is one of the largest Shivling of Lord Shiva with a height of about 75 feet. This Shivalinga is situated at a height of about 18,570 feet above sea level.

 

The Shrikhand Mahadev Kailash Yatra starts from the base village of Jaun in Himachal Pradesh, which is about a 32 km walk to the top of Shrikhand. The entire route of this journey is quite dangerous. This is why this journey is considered tougher than the Amarnath Yatra. Only devotees above 15 years of age can travel in this journey.

 

During the Shrikhand Mahadev Yatra, many religious places and Dev Sthan are visited. Statues of Goddess Parvati, Lord Ganesha and Swami Karthik are also established about 50 meters before the visit of Shrikhand Madhava. On the way, there are natural Shiva Caves, seven temples in Nirmand, nine goddesses including Mata Parvati in Javas, Parashurama Temple, Dakshineswar Mahadev, Hanuman Temple Arsu, Sinhagad, Jotkali, Dhankdwar, Bakasur Badh, Dhankdwar and Kunsha are religious places.

 

Shrikhand Mahadev Kailash Story


According to the legend, there was a demon named Bhasmasura. He received a boon from Lord Shiva by rigorous penance that anyone he laid his hands on would be consumed. Then he got sinned and thought about marrying Goddess Parvati and wanted to destroy them by placing his hands on Lord Shiva. Lord Vishnu, taking the form of Mohini, persuaded Bhasmasura to dance with him. While dancing, Bhasmasura laid his hands on his own head and he was consumed. For this reason, even today the soil and water here appear red.

 

Shrikhand Mahadev Kailash Yatra


The journey starts from Jaun, and after walking 3 km, reach Singhad, here is the first base camp, where food and other services are provided to the pilgrims. After that, there is a 12 km steep climb up to Thachuru, which is also known as Dandi-Dhar.

 

Thakuru is another base camp after Thakuru, where food and tents are provided. The journey starts with a 3 km climb to Kalighati, which is believed to be the abode of Goddess Kali. If the weather is clear, then Shrikhand Mahadev Shivling can be seen from this place. There is a 1 km downhill stretch from Kalighati towards Bhima Talai.

 

Departing from Bhima Talai, reach the Kunsa Valley, after another distance of 3 km from here, the next base camp is Bhim Dawar, where all general services are available. Just 2 km ahead is another base camp - Parvati Bagh, this garden is believed to have been planted by Mata Parvati. The garden has flowers like Brahma Kamal, also known as Saussurea obvallata.

 

It is believed that this is the place where the elephant head was placed on Lord Ganesha. 2 km from there, the next place is Nain Sarvor. After this, reaching the height of about 3 km, through rocky areas, reach Shrikhand Mahadev.

 hen after fulfilling Bhasmasur's wish, Lord Shiva got into trouble, then Lord Shiva sat in Samadhi in 50 Feet Stone Shivling at 16 thousand 900 feet above sea level. Lord Vishnu burned Bhasmasur by taking the form of a dancing woman, But to break the Samadhi of Lord Shiva, Maa Parvati filled Nainsar Lake with her tears, When She did his long Akhand Upasana, Lord Shiva came out after breaking 50 feet stone Shivling from then onwards this Parvat is known as Shri Khand Kailash.

 
Lord Shiva the global caricature master has his abode in, Shrikhand peak . Shrikhand Mahadev is a pilgrimage place for Hindus. Shrikhand Mahadev is considered to be the abode of Lord Shiva. Its peak is 5155 meters high from the main sea level. So it is a place of great attraction for religious people as well as for climbers and trekkers. It is part of the Great Himalaya National Park (Kullu-Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India) where the forests and the high-altitude meadows are protected and can display their aesthetic beauty. Shrikhand Mahadev's peak resembles the Shivaling. Numerous Lord Shiva devotees undertake the difficult trek to the mountain during the main pilgrimage season (July – August). At the top of the mountain, there is a small shrine of Lord Shiva.
 
On the way to Shrikhand Mahadev peak, a few glaciers also have to be crossed before reaching the majestic peak of Shrikhand. But the difficult trek is not keeping Lord Shiva devotees away. Shrikhand peak is getting more and more visitors. It is usually undertaken to coincide with the Ashada Poornima (full moon day in June or July) as per the Hindu Vikram calendar. It continues till the Purnima of Ashwani month (full moon day of September or October). It is believed that Lord Shiva meditated here. It is also believed that the Pandavas used to visit the peak.
 
This pilgrimage is surely not for the weak because at times a trekker needs all the skills of an expert mountaineer. The initial phase of the journey passes through beautiful mist-laden forests filled with beautiful flowers and huge trees. Then the journey enters the difficult Himalayan terrain and it takes around seven to eight days and depends on the devotee’s stamina and climate conditions. This trek needs a little experience trekking.
