Doleshwor Mahadeva (डोलेश्वर महादेव) Nepal

Doleshwar MahadevLocated at Bhaktapur, the Doleshwor Mahadeva temple is the head while the hump-backed structure at Uttarakhand’s Kedarnath temple is worshipped as the torso of the holy bull.

Pandavas reached the Kedarnath region to seek forgiveness from Lord Shiva for the loss of lives during the 18-day Mahabharata war. But Lord Shiva was not ready to forgive them and disguised himself as a bull. The Pandavas soon realized that the Bull was Lord Shiva and tried to stop it by pulling the tail, whence the head got separated and vanished. The Pandavas finally located the head part as directed by the holy voice (Aakashvani) in the Pashupat Region of Nepal. aims to be the World’s Largest depository of information about Lord Shiva, providing details about temples, stories, publications and photos for your use, and onward distribution.
