About: Nageshwar Jyotirlinga – Protection from Poison

The Nageshwar Temple also known as Nagnath Temple is located on the route between Gomati Dwarka and the Bait Dwarka island on the coast of Saurashtra in Gujarat. This Jyotirlinga holds special significance as it symbolizes protection from all types of poison. It is believed that those who worship this temple become free of all poisons. According to the Shiva Purana, a Shiva devotee by the name of Supriya was captured by the demon Daaruka. The demon imprisoned her with several others in his capital Daarukavana. Supriya advised all prisoners to chant ‘Aum Namaha Shivaya‘ which enraged Daaruka who ran to kill Supriya. Lord Shiva manifested in front of the demon and put an end to him. Thus the Nageshwar Jyotirlinga came into being.
