Goddess Parvaty wanted to know about the various Shiv Lings and deities  located at several places in Kashi and Lord Shiva was pleased to narrate about such deities (Kashi Khand, Chapter 97).

In the vicinity of Eeshaneshwar and Langlishwar, Kashi Khand mentions one Samudreshwar Ling.



Devotees who worship these Lings will attain Siddhi and Moksha.  They will not be regarded as ordinary mortals by the community.


Samudreshwar is located in the main road at Bansphatak.  When a devotee proceeds from Godowlia to Chowk, just after Bansphatak Vishwanath Gulli, Samudreshwar will be on the right side of the road.  If a devotee is traveling from Chowk to Godowlia, this deity will be on the left side of the road just before Bansphatak Vishwanath Gulli.  Locals refer to this Ling as Ardha Kapari Baba.


The place of worship is open from 06.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m and from 05.00 p.m. to 09.00 p.m. The timings are somewhat flexible. Devotees can worship and perform pooja as per their convenience.
