Teerth-Kund at Shiva Temple (शिव मन्दिर), Gola Gokran Nath
Teerth-Kund at Shiva Temple (शिव मन्दिर), Gola Gokran Nath

The story of Gokaran Nath is same as Vaidyanath. It is the belief of the people that Lord Shiva was pleased with the penance (Tapasya) of Rawana (King of Lanka) and offered him a boon. Rawana requested the Lord Shiva to go to Lanka with him and leave Himalaya forever. The Lord Shiva agreed to go on condition that he should not be placed anywhere on the way to Lanka. If he were placed anywhere, he would settle at that place. Shiv gave him one of the twelve Jyotirlingams. Rawana agreed and started his journey to Lanka with the Lord on his head. When Rawana reached the Gola Gokaran Nath (then called Gollihara) he felt the need to urinate (a call of nature). Rawana offered some gold coins to a shepherd (who was none other than Lord Ganesha sent by deities) for placing the Lord Shiva on his head until he returned. The shepherd (Lord Ganesha) placed him on the land. Rawana failed to lift him up despite all his efforts. He pressed him on his head with his thumb in full anger. The impression of Rawana's thumb is still present on the Shivling. Because of that the Shivling became like a Cow's Ear (गोकर्ण)and mounted around 5 feet below from the ground level.


1. Chaiti Mela

In the month of Chatra (April) a great fair is organised for one month known as Cheti-Mela.

2. Saavan Mela

The importance of Gokarnnath dham increases during the month of Shrawan. During this period, lakhs of devotees throng the Holy Shiv Temple. The kanwarias first take a dip in the tirth sarovar (pilgrimage pond) to purify themselves, and then enter into the temple, where the Ganges water is offered to the Jyotirlingam.

The legend says that when the churning of oceans - Samudra Manthana - took place in the month of Shravan, fourteen different types of rubies came out. Thirteen of these were distributed amongst the demons, except Halahal (poison). Lord Shiva drank the Halahal and stored it in his throat. Hence the name Neelkantha (meaning blue throat) is attributed to Shiva.

To reduce the strong effect of poison, Lord Shiva wore the crescent moon on his head. All the Gods, thereafter started offering the Ganges water to Lord Shiva to make lessen the effect of poison.

Since, this happened in the month of Shravan, since then the Shiva devotees offer the Ganges water in this month.

This pilgrimage continues during the whole month of Shravan for 30 days, during July–August every year. It is estimated that within this period of one month around 10 to 15 lakhs pilgrims visit Gokarnnath dham.
