Jarasandheshwar

In the vicinity of Vishalakshy is the Jarasandheshwar Ling. By worshipping this Ling, the devotee may be cured of any illness.  This Ling has been described as Jwara Nashak (Fever eradicator).

In ancient times there was not much medical advancement and people used to worship various deities for being cured of any disease.  Nowadays a lot of pathological and diagnostic tests are available to determine the exact type of ailment.  Our enquiries reveal that even now devout people worship this deity for riddance from fevers etc.
