सौराष्ट्रे सोमनाथं च श्री शैले मल्लिकार्जुनम |
उज्जयिन्यां महाकालंओंकारं ममलेश्वरम ||
केदारं हिमवत्प्रष्ठे डाकिन्यां भीमशंकरम |
वाराणस्यां च विश्वेशं त्रयम्बकं गोतमी तटे ||
वैधनाथं चितभूमौ नागेशं दारुकावने |
सेतुबन्धे च रामेशं घुश्मेशं तु शिवालये ||

In older times, this place was named shivalaya, changed to shival, and then to shiwar(1179,tampatra).

2. According to Shivpuran(kotirudra)chapter 33:In south of ghushmeshwara jyotirling, there is devagiri mountain.

दक्षिणस्यां दिशि श्रैष्ठो गिरिर्देवेति संज्ञकः महाशोभाविन्तो नित्यं राजतेऽदभुत दर्शन:
तस्यैव निकटः ऐको भारद्वाज कुलोदभव: सुधर्मा नाम विप्रशच न्यवसद् ब्रह्मवित्तमः ।।


In south of jyotirlinga temple, Shiwar, there is a mountain known as devegiri, it turns into gold for a moment on the day of
mahashivratri,whose proof is given by story of banjara who got gold while he was throwing stones at his cow and from these
stones he helped build jyotirling walls and krinmukteshwar temple.

तदोवाच शिवस्तत्र सुप्रसन्नो महेश्वर: स्थास्येत्र तव नाम्नाहं घुश्मेशाख्यः सुखप्रदः।44।
घुश्मेशाख्यं सुप्रसिद्धं में जायतां शुभ: इदं सरस्तु लिंगानामालयं जयतां सदा।45।
तस्माच्छिवालयं नाम प्रसिद्धं भुवनत्रये सर्वकामप्रदं हयेत दर्शनात्स्यात्सदासरः।46।


And Then shiva being very happy gave following vardan to Ghushma that I will be called ghushmeshwar and will always reside here and
will fill fortune in everybody’s life.This place will be famous by name jyotirling ghushmeshwar.
this pond will be residence of shivlings and it will be famous in three lokas in the Name of
Shivalya and Darshan of the pond will give whatever desired.

and the name of shivalaya perpetuates. The gotra of Parashar brahman pujari of this tample is also Shivalya.

5. In kalyan(shri kalyan 55, 4 april 81 geeta press gorakhpur),pandit
purushottam sharma gave quotes based on ghushmeshwar jyotirling ,shiwar


“Two devegiri mountains exist. In ‘teerthsnk’and ‘shivpuranank’of kalyan,people misunderstud karnatak’s one before.
But the truth is shiwar’s ghushmeshwar.On it shankaracharya, aacharya, and mahatma’s have given the approval.

Pandit purushottam asked for story of karnataka based mountain ,so shri vishwanath patil ,editor of kathalok, subhash marg, delhi-6, send their story.

There was a queen ghrishna,her husband had a second wife who kidnapped ghrishna’s son and send him in forest so that animals ate him .
Ghrishna was a believer of lord shiva.He told her the place where she will get her son.
But the above story is different from story in Shivpuran (kotirudra)chapter33,so Shri Vishwanath patil after being
satisfied from the proofs that the ghushmeshwar is in shiwar,posted in their patrika in December 1974 page no.65 to 67.
