Sudh Mahadev

Sudh Mahadev temple, Udhampur district, Jammu and KashmirMeditation: I meditate on Lord Shiva blessing devotee Sudheet during his final moments of life.

Sudh Mahadev: Sudh Mahadev temple is a famous temple of Lord Shiva. Sudh Mahadev is associated with the legend of devotee Sudheet. According to this legend Sudheet was devotee of Lord Shiva who was a demon in his previous birth. Therefore he had frightening demoniac looks. Once, when he came to pay respectful obeisance to Devi Uma, She shrieked. Lord Shiva threw His trident which hit Sudheet fatally. Realising His mistake Shiva offered to resuscitate Sudheet, but he preferred death in the hand of the Lord. Touched by his devotion, Shiva named the place after His devotee Sudheet. The trident which killed Sudheet is still kept in the temple.

• Sudh Mahadev temple is located in the Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir.
