Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra Devotees at Chintaharan Mahadev Temple, Mahavan, Uttar Pradesh

Chintaharan Mahadev temple is at Mahavan in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh.

Chintaharan Mahadev temple – our next ‘Braj Chaurasi Kos Yatra’ stop.

We offer prayers and Prasad. The priest told us the story about the temple.

Once Kanhaiya ( another name of Lord Krishna ) ate clay. This was complained to Yashoda – mother of Kanhaiya. Mother questioned Kanhaiya which Kanhaiya denied. He was asked to open mouth to show tongue. Kanhaiya opened mouth and Universe was present. Yashoda was amazed as well as worried a lot. During that time Akashvani occurred. Yashoda was suggested to visit river Yamuna to meet a saint. Thus she was pacified not to worry as the child is not an ordinary child. The child is Lord himself. Chinta i.e., worry thus the saint Lord Shiva himself was named as Chintaharan Mahadev and temple was built. The best about the shivling present within the temple is one shivling having 108 shivling within.

Prayers and I walk around to be with nature.

And we proceed towards another location closely related with Shri Chintaharan Mahadev story and is about 1 km approx.

Brahma ghat – The place where Kanhaiya showed Yashoda Universe within his mouth.
