According to Kashi Khand, Chapter 94, near Moksha Dwareshwar, one can find Karuneshwar Ling. A person worshipping this Ling will always find happiness.



A person who takes bath in Manikarnika and worships Karuneshwar will always be happy. Devotees should worship this Ling on all Mondays.  A devotee who performs pooja on all Mondays for one full year will see that all his wishes get fulfilled. 

Even if a person listens to the greatness of Karuneshwar as narrated by any learned person, the former stands to benefit by this.


Karuneshwar is located at Ck.34/10, Lahouri Tola, near Phoota Ganesh.  From Vishwanath temple, a devotee should approach Saraswati Phatak and proceed further straight and after walking about 200 metres, he will approach a place where Phoote Ganesh is located.  People can reach this place by travelling upto Dasaswamedh Vishwanath Gulli by rickshaw and on foot through  Gullies. Lahouri Tola Phoota Ganesh is a famous landmark.


The Ling is located inside a house and people can have darshan.  No specific details of Pooja etc. were given by the local people as it was inside a house.
