Mukthidham Temple Token


This is Mukthidham Temple Token in my collection. 
Muktidham is a marble temple complex honouring various Hindu gods. It is a popular tourist attraction situated in the Nashik Road suburb of the city of Nashik in the western state of Maharashtra in India. It is privately operated through a trust and was built through a generous donation by the late Mr. J.D. Chauhan-Bytco, a local industrialist.

Muktidham Temple, Nashik.

It has replicas of 12 Jyotirlingas, which have been built as per dimension of original deities and have been sanctified by sending them to their respective pilgrimage centers. The temple is made with marble from Makrana in Rajastan, and by Rajastani sculptors. Unique to this temple are eighteen chapters of Geeta written on the walls. Apart from the replicas of all the twelve Jyotirlingas, there are also idols of all major Hindu Gods and Goddesses.Devotees prefer to visit Muktidham Temple during the period of a famous fair “Kumbh Mela”.

It is believed that a holy dharshan of this shrine provides as much virtue as a visit to four holy places, which makes this magnificient shrine a crowded pilgrim center. This delicate piece of architecture with its glittering whiteness embodies its serenity and sacredness. Exquisitely carved interior walls with the 18 chapters of Bhagavad Gita, is worth mentioning.
