SOMESHWAR

Kashi Khand, Chapter 100 states that devotees should undertake religious tour (Yatra) of several deities situated within the main area of Kashi. This Yatra is known as Antargrihi Yatra and should be undertaken daily.

Someshwar

Someshwar

One such deity among the deities to be worshipped is Someshwar.  It is worth mentioning that Someshwar is symbolic of Somnath Jyotir Ling.

People who worship this deity will always be blessed with happiness and prosperity.

Many people undertake Dwadasa Jyotirlinga Yatra in Kashi (Dwadasa means twelve).  Someshwar represents Somnath of Saurashtra which is the first among the twelve jyotirlings.  Even otherwise, old timers say that devotees in Kashi, who cannot travel upto Somnath in Gujarat, can worship this Shiv Ling, Someshwar, in Kashi and they will derive the same amount of blessings.

LOCATION OF SOMESHWAR

Someshwar is locted at D.16/34, Manmandir Ghat. Devotees can travel upto Dasaswamedh Vishwanath Gully by rickshaw, enter the gulli and immediately take a right turn and proceed further for about 150 yards. They may seek guidance from the locals at that place to reach the Varahi temple and proceed further.  Someshwar is located in the vicinity of Varahi temple.

TYPES OF POOJA

The temple remains open for worship from 05.00 a.m. to 09.00 a.m. and from 05.00 p.m. to 09.00 p.m. The timings are flexible.  During closed time, devotees can have darshan from outside.
