(Shiva Purana - Koti Rudra Samhita 31)

Shiva Rameshwar Jyotirlinga Events:

Shiva Purana (Koti Rudra Samhita 31): Sri Rama camps on the seashore with the army of monkeys: When Sri Rama came to know that Devi Sita was in Lanka, he marched with a huge army of monkeys and camped on the shore of the southern sea.

Sri Rama worships Lord Shiva: There, Sri Rama made a Parthiva Linga and worshipped Lord Shiva with sixteen types of ritualistic worships. He prayed to Lord Shiva with great devotion to bless him for the victory of his mission against Ravana, another great devotee of Shiva. Sri Rama worshipped Lord Shiva again and again; he recited mantras, meditated and danced before the Lord. His heart was overwhelmed with devotional love.

Shiva blesses Sri Rama: Shiva became very pleased and appeared before Rama. He told Rama to ask for a boon. Sri Rama eulogized Lord Shiva and prayed for victory against Ravana. Shiva granted him the boon.

Shiva abides there as Jyotirlinga: Sri Rama further requested Shiva to reside in the Linga for the welfare of all people. Shiva took the form of a Linga and resided there. The Linga became famous in the world as Rameshwara. This Linga fulfills the wishes of the devotees and grants prosperity and salvation. Whoever worships this Shiva Linga with Ganga water with great devotion becomes a Jivanamukta.
