Long time back sixty beautiful girls including Rohini came to Kashi and started intensely worshipping Lord Shiva.  They reached the place where Varuna river joins Ganga River, installed a Ling called Nakshatreshwar and began performing Pooja of Lord Shiva.



Lord Shiva appeared before them and desired to know their wishes. The beautiful girls prayed that each of them wanted a husband as powerful and handsome as the Lord himself.  Lord Shiva granted that all their wishes will be fulfilled and stated that they will reside in a celestial world which will be even above Chandra Lok.

Devotees who worship Nakshatreshwar will be free from any afflictions caused by any planet or Nakshatra in their horoscope. The devotees, after their death, will reach the celestial world where these beautiful girls have been ordained to live by Lord Shiva.


Nakshatreshwar is located at A.37/51, Raj Ghat Fort, Adi Keshav Temple.  Devotees can travel upto this place by autorickshaw or cycle rickshaw or car.


The place of worship is open from 06.00 a.m. to 12. Noon and from 04.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m.  The timings may be flexible. At times when the main gate is closed, devotees can have darshan through the grill gate.


The temple is under the charge of Shri C.P. Tripathi and for performing any special pooja like Rudra Japam etc. he may be contacted at his Cell (0)9795387929.
