About - Lord Bhuteshwar - The Kotwal of Mathura (Uttar Pradesh, India)

(English translation)

Lord Bhuteshwar is the Kotwal of Mathura. The way Rama worshiped Rameshwar to win the victory over Lanka and won, by the order of Lord Rama, Shatrughan worshiped Bhuteshwar Mahadev, and by killing the powerful demon Lavanasura, he liberated Mathura from the demons. Madhu and Kaitabha in Treta Yuga were two demons who were killed by Chandi. Madhu’s son was Lavanasura. Lavanasura did penance and asked for an unconquered (trident) boon from Lord Bhuteshwar. Lord Shiva gave a boon to Lavanasura that as long as there is a trident in his palace, no one will be able to kill him. After having boon Lavanasura became free from the fear of death and created terror in Mathura. Lavanasura did not allow the sages to perform the Yagya and started killing them. Saddened by this, the sages reached Ayodhya with a sense of their protection, where Lord Rama was the ruler and there was Rama raj. The sages requested Lord Rama to send Shatrughan to Mathura to protect them and make him the king of Mathura. Lord Rama ordered Shatrughan to go to Mathura to protect the sages. Shatrughan reached Mathura but even after three wars, he could not conquer Lavanasura. Desperate Shatrughan came back to Ayodhya and told Lord Rama that even after three wars he could not get the victory. On this, Shri Rama asked him to go back to Mathura and before the war, worship Bhuteshwar in the same way as before invading Lanka, Shri Rama accompanied the monkey army to Rameshwaram and worshipped Rameshwaram. Shatrughan did exactly the same and established the kingdom over Mathura by killing Lavanasura. Even in Dwapar Yuga, there is a description of the glory of Bhuteshwar. Lord Krishna lived in Gokul for five years, Leela for seven years and, in 11 years 28 days killed Kansa. After this, he went to Dwarka. After returning to Mathura again at the end of the Kurukshetra war, the parents remind him of the promise that he had promised to take them to Chardham, that he should fulfill it. Shri Krishna said I am alone and you are four that is why I invite all the four Dhams and 33 Koti deities to Braj. After this, wherever Lord Krishna went grazing, Gods were seated. Hence it is also called Gaulok. Ganga Ji and Kashi Vishwanath did not come. On this Ganga Ji said that to reach Mathura, Yamuna Ji will have to be crossed, due to which the honor of the sister will be insulted. Shri Krishna incarnated Ganga Ji as Manasi Ganga. Lord Kashi Vishwanath is said to be elevated in Braj in the form of Lord Bhuteshwar Mahadev. Lord Bhole Nath said that you can see Bhuteshwar in your area, made him Kotwal and Shri Krishna made him the owner of Braj Chaurasi (84) Kos. Therefore Bhuteshwar Mahadev is also called the Kotwal of Mathura. The specialty of this temple is that God is present everywhere to protect the 52 Shakti Peethas. Here Sati’s hair had fallen, which is said to be the eleventh form. Bhuteshwar to protect the Pind, Mahadev is present in the name of Bhuteshwar Bhairav.
