These Shiv Gans also decided to settle down in Kashi and they installed Shiv Lings which came to be known after their names. One Shiv Gan named Langli     installed a Shiv Ling and started worshipping Lord Shiva.  This Ling came to be known as Langlishwar.  Kashi Khand, Chapter 55 states that a devotee who worships Langlishwar  will never fall sick and will always remain healthy.

Kashi Khand also advises devotees to make donations to poor people and farmers after worshipping Langlishwar, which will result in accrual of wealth and prosperity to the devotees.
