History of the Amrakh Ji Mahadev Temple
Raja Ambrish was a king who reigned around 1500 years ago. The King renounced all earthly pleasures and travelled to Shiv Ji’s shrine to worship him.
He used to go to the River Ganga every day to carry water to worship the Shiv linga, which he would use in the Shivlinga’s Abhishek.
Goddess Ganga was so moved by his trust and devotion that she chose to accompany the king one day, and it is stated that the Ganga’s water has been flowing in the temple ever since.
Gang Kund is the name given to the area where the water flows. Even during droughts, the kund has never dried up. The King was afterwards known as Amar Rishi, which is why the Mandir is known as Amrakh Ji Mahadev temple.
