About

Details

According to the Puranas – Daruka was a demon and was a great devotee of Lord Shiva & Parvati. He used to trouble hermits of the forest and hence was once attacked by the Devas. Afraid of Deva’s attack Daruka lifted the entire forest and placed it in the middle of the sea. He could do so with the special boon blessed by Goddess Parvati. Even after such immigration, Daruka wouldn’t stop his bad deeds and he started imprisoning innocents. “Supriya” one of the sufferers of Daruka’s misdeeds too was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. She continued praying Lord Shiva even in the prison of Daruka and became liable for punishment of death. Lord Shiva appeared for her prayers and destroyed all the demons. While dying, Daruka repented for his sins. He prayed to be remembered forever as a warning to others. Lord Shiva accepted his prayers and stayed in the Darukavan in the form of jyotirlinga as a Nageshwara and Parvati as Nageshwari with him.
