PITRESHWAR

Goddess Parvaty wanted to know about  various Shiv Lings and deities at several places in Kashi and Lord Shiva was pleased to narrate about such deities (Kashi Khand, Chapter 97).

Kashi Khand mentions one Pitreshwar Ling near a Pond named as Pitri Kund.

Devotees who perform rituals for their forefathers at Pitri Kund and worship Pitreshwar Ling will make their forefathers very happy and in turn the devotees will always have their blessings.

The temple is open from 06.00 a.m. upto 10.00 p.m.  Aarti is held in the morning.  Our enquiries reveal that during Pitar Paksh (one fortnight just preceding Navratri in September-October), people perform rituals for their forefathers at Pitri Kund.
