Nashik is considered the fourth largest city in Maharashtra state after Pune, Mumbai, and Nagpur. Nashik is known as the Hindu pilgrimage sites of the Kumbh Mela, which is held every 12 years. Nashik has historical, social and cultural and mythological, importance.
Nashik was known as Panchavati before the Ramayan period. Ramkund, Kalaram Temple, MuktiDham, Panchvati, Trimbakeshwar Shiva Temple, Satshrungi Devi, and Shirdi Sai Baba Temple are the best attraction of Nashik city. Among all these Temples, Trimbakeshwar Temple has more importance.
Trimbakeshwar is the most sacred town in Nashik city. There are several reasons for this belief. The Godavari originates from the Brahmagiri hills in Trimbakeshwar town, and it is the birthplace of Lord Ganesha, called a place of Tri-SandhyaGayatri.
Trimbakeshwar Temple is famous for rituals like Narayan Nagbali Puja, Kaal Sarp Yog Puja, Tripindi Shradh Puja, Kumbha Vivah, Mahamrityunjay Jaap, and Rudra Abhishek. It is very promising that one of the Best Pandit groups performed all these rituals, i.e. Trimbakeshwar Purohit Sangh. They are all local Pandit of Trimbakeshwartown and called "Tamrapatradhari Guruji". Tamrapatradhari means only, and only these Pandiji has the Birthright to perform puja at Trimbakeshwar Temple. If you plan to perform Puja at Trimbak, please confirm that Panditji / Guruji Should be Tamrapatrdhari.
Jyotirlinga means sacred shrine of Lord Shiva; It is believed that Lord Shiva himself visited these religious cities, and hence they have a special place in the devotee's heart. Trimbakeshwar Temple is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga, which has three faces: Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Mahesh.
Lord Shiva's Trimbakeshwar Temple located in Trimbak town at a distance of about 28 km from Nashik, Maharashtra, near the mountain named Brahamagiri, from which the river Godavari flows. It was constructed by the third Peshwa Balaji Bajirao, also known as Nana Saheb, between 1755 to 1786 AD.
The whole Temple has been built in the Nagara style of architecture with black stone. This temple has a huge area with many small Shiva Lingas in the small shrines near the walls. It is 1000 years old Temple.
It is believed that Gautama Rishi lived on the Brahmagiri hills with his wife, Ahilya. There was a famine of 24 years; people were affected by the pangs of hunger. Daily in the morning, Gautama Rishi sows rice in the surrounding fields of his Ashram. Lord Varun (God of the rain), pleased with the sage of Gautama, arranged the rain everywhere in Gautama's Ashram, which was in Trimbakeshwar.
Because of Gautama Rishi Steadfast devotion and regular prayers, God blessed him with abundant food grains. In the afternoon, he reaps the crop and fed it to a group of Rishis who took shelter in Gautama's Ashram on account of the famine. Because of all these Hrishis blessings, Gautam Rishi Punya or merit got increased. Lord Indras also get jealous due to raised position of Gautam Rishi.
Lord Indra ordered clouds to rain all over the Trimbakeshwar, so that femine will over, Rishis will go back, and merits of Gautam Rishi will get weakened. Gautama requested all Rishis to stay back and kept on feeding them. The other Rishi also felt jealous of him and sent a cow to Gautam Rishi's field. When Gautam Rishi tried to frighten the Cow away from his fields, Cow died. It was Jaya- Goddess Paravati's friend, who had taken the form of Cow.
Gautama worshipped Lord Shiva, requested him to release the Ganga river, and a bath in the Ganga River would set him free of his sins. Lord Shiva released Ganga and told her to stay there. The Kushavarta Pond that exists now in Godavari River, people worship the Godavari as Ganga. All Rishi's requested to Lord Shiva to stay there, which Lord Shiva did in the form of Trimbakeshwar Jyotirlinga.
The Jyotirlinga's extraordinary feature is its three faces embodying Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Rudra. The three faces of Jyotirling make this place more special. The Hindu belief that those who visit Trimabkeshwar attain salvation or Moksha.
Trimbakeshwar temple in Nashik is considered as Best Temple for performing pooja's because Narayan Nagbali Puja, KaalSarp Shanti, Tripindi Shradh Puja, Kumbha Vivah, Mahamrityunjay Jaap, and Rudra Abhishek, these rituals are performed in the Trimbakeshwar Temple only.
It is said that it will be more effective to perform rituals at Trimabakeshwar than performing at any other place. All pujas are performed under the guidance of authorized Guruji who belong from the legacy in their houses and hold Tamrapatra (ancient copper in scripture) to perform puja.
Tamrapatrdhari Pandit means who have legal Birthright to perform puja at Trimbakeshwar Temple. These all are local Tamrapatradhari Purohits are called Trimabkeshwar Purohit Sangh. For more than 1200 years, Purohit Sangh is working tremendously and helps devotees and give the best service to perform puja.
Because of these factors, I suggest Trimbakeshwar Temple is best for performing pujas.
