More Information About Daksheshwar Mahadev Temple

Daksha Mahadev Temple, situated in Kankhal, is located at a distance of 4 km from the township of Haridwar. One of the ancient temples of Lord Shiva, this temple is visited by large number of devotees every year. According to the mythologies, this temple is associated to Daksha Yagya. Popularly known as Shri Daksheshwar Temple, this temple was initially constructed in 1810 AD by Queen Dhankaur. However, the temple was again constructed in 1962.
Like most of the other shrines, the Daksha Temple has also associations with a legend. Hindus believe that it is here where King Daksha Prajapati (Sati's father) has observed his yagna (a ritual meant to invoke gods and seek their favour). Legend has it that while the king performed the ritual he did not invite Lord Shiva. On learning this Sati (Lord Shiva's consort) felt deeply insulted and as a result she set herself on fire in the yagna kund. An infuriated Shiva killed king Daksha. However, Shiva later brought Sati's father back to life. The Daksha Temple stands to commemorate the whole incident.

The event being a highly significant one, the Daksha Temple held in high reverence by the Hindus. Pilgrims and devotees from all around come to Kankhal to pay a visit to the temple and seek blessings from the deity. The Birbhadreshwar Temple in Kankhal is another prominent religious site that devotees visit during their tour from Haridwar to Kankhal.
