Aundha Nagnath Temple History :
Aundha Nagnath (Nageshwaram) is a pilgrimage site in the district of Hingoli in the Indian state of Maharashtra. The current temple is said to have been built in the 13th century by the Seuna (Yadava) dynasty. The first temple is said to date back to the time of the Mahabharata and was built by Yudhishthira, the eldest of the Pandavas, during their 14-year exile from Hastinapur. According to legend, this temple building was seven stories tall before being sacked by Aurangzeb.
Today, however, the Sanctum Sanctorum, which is located beneath the ground level and is accessed by two steep steps, is with the Vatican. The narrow chamber provides little space for devotees to worship, and constant prayers (Abhisheka) by Pandit Chants provide peace of mind for offering personal prayers.
