I am going to take you on a spiritual journey of the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines of Lord Shiva in India.
I am going to share my experience regarding where these Jyotirlingas are located, the various modes of transportation through which you can reached there. We will look into the various stay and the food options available nearby the temples.
Lastly, I will also share some traveller tips which will help you plan your itinerary.
A Jyotirlinga or Jyotirlingam, is a devotional representation of Lord Shiva.
Jyoti means ‘radiance’ and lingam the ‘Image or Sign’ of Shiva; Jyotir Lingam thus means the Radiant Sign of The Almighty Shiva.
The 12 Jyotirlinga are spread across the country, I tried covering them in multiple phases as I was travelling solo and on a budget.
I selected a base location for each Jyotirling, which is a nearby city having good connectivity of trains and buses.
I am sure these information’s shared will be very helpful throughout your journey & also in planning your itinerary.
