MARKANDEYSHWAR

Lord Vishnu was describing various religiously important places, teerths etc. to Sage Bindu (Kashi Khand, Chapter 61). 

Devotees should bathe in Markanday Teerth and perform rituals for their forefathers. The devotees should then worship Markandeyshwar nearby.

By performing the above religious activities, the devotees will be cleansed of all their sins howsoever abysmal or outrageous these may be.

Markanday Teerth is not in existence now.

LOCATION OF MARKANDEYSHWAR

Markandeyshwar is located at Ck.36/10,  in the bazar behind Gyan Vapi.  Devotees can travel upto Gyan Vapi (Near Chowk) by rickshaw, take a right turn, climb down the steps and again take a right turn. (If a devotee proceeds diagonally left, he will enter the Gyan Vapi area).  After walking a few yards, the devotee will come to Markhandeyshwar on the right side. For ready reference, Jalans (textile merchants) have a portion of their shop nearby (cut piece wing).
