As per local legends, Kharosa is the place where Lord #Ram and Lakshman killed the demons Khar & Dushan.

Ramwadi, a village adjacent to Kharosa is believed to be a spot where Lord Ram, Maa Sita and Lakshman stayed during their exile.

The first and second cave are a G+1 structure.

Both these caves are interconnected.

Unfortunately, the first cave has now been defiled. It appears that the statue in this cave is of the ‘Trimurti’.

You can also see the garbage littered in the corner.

Do #Japa of your #Ishta #Mantra mentally with its meaning and right #Bhava.

You will realize the spiritual benefits. (1/13)

#Thread on Shivalinga - a symbolic representation of the all powerful, omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent Mahadev, and His Shiv-Shakti manifestation. #SHIVA #shakti #SanatanDharma #Hinduism #Dharma #Hindutva

Shiva word means ‘Kalyan’ or welfare and happiness for all, irrespective of caste, creed, gender etc. Hence, when we chant ‘AUM NAMAH SHIVAYA’ , it means we humbly surrender before the all powerful, omniscient, omnipotent..
