Tilbhandeshwar Temple Timings, Varanasi

There is more than one Shivalay in Kashi, the glory of which is described in the Shiva Purana and many other Puranas. Today, every pagoda is crowded with people and one such Shiv temple is Tilbhandeshwar Mahadev, also known as Vibhandeshwar Mahadev.

He is Mahadev of Varanasi, as it is really depicted from the name itself that it is related to sesame and mole. Because Baba Bholenath grows here every day, it is equal to a sesame seed.

The temple of Baba Tilbhandeshwar Mahadev is located in Kedarkhand and Kashi is considered to be situated in two sections, i.e., Kashi Khand and Kedarkhand. The Shivalay resonates with the chants of Har Har Mahadev on the day of Mahashivratri.

Kashi Khand belongs to Baba Vishwanath and Mahamrityunjay. While Kedarkhand includes Tilbhandeshwar, Kedareshwar and many other important Shivalayas.

Devotees worship Baba for the fulfilment of wishes by performing Jalabhishek and Rudrabhishek. Experts say that offering sesame seeds to Baba Tilbhandeshwar brings happiness and prosperity, as sesame is dedicated to Lakshmi and is very dear to Baba Mahadev.

Tilbhandeshwar Temple History

Located in the Bhelupur area of Varanasi, the historic temple dedicated to Tilbhandeshwar Mahadev is self-styled. Since the memorial’s establishment, the Shivling, which is present there, has come out by itself.

The experts state that when Baba Bholenath initially started growing, his size gradually increased to the point that the gods and saints feared and requested Baba Bholenath, showing him that when he persisted in growing as a mole, the earth would fall apart.

After this, Lord Bholenath accepted their requests, assuring that during the day of Makar Sankranti, which falls on a single day per year instead of every day, Bholenath will thereafter grow like a mole.

In addition, there’s another story that says that Lord Bholenath accepted the prayers and the Shivlingam increased the month by 15 days while decreasing by a simple 15 days a month.

The sages asked to rub the Shivling with the hair of the coconut shell to keep this majestic form of Baba stable, a practice that continues even today. By pulling the form of Baba Bholenath from the hair of the coconut, the huge shivling is prevented from growing.

It is said about Kashi, the city of Bhole Shankar, “Kan Kan Mey Base Hain Bhole Shankar.”

It has also been said in the Shiva Purana, “Kashyam Marnyam Mukti,” i.e., salvation is attained on death in Kashi. In such a way, how important this divine form of Shiva is for the devotees is difficult to describe in words.
