Description

Garhmukteshwar is a treasure pilgrim centre.Also referred to as Khandvi Van and Shiva Vallabhpur just because of its being an important centre of the Vallabh cult, Garhmukteshwar has been associated with mythology.It is said that this was the place where King Shivi, an ancestor of Lord Rama, had spend the fourth period of his life as an ascetic.Later, with the help of renowned sage Parshuram, he built a temple devoted to Lord Shiva.

Garhmukteshwar once boasted off a very ancient fort that is said to be built by later Pandavas, brothers of Kaurvas. A Maratha general Mir Bhawan furnished this fort during the Anglo-Maratha war. It is said that the Fort was in so good a condition when the British took possession of the place that it was found possible to locate the District Administration in it without incurring much expense on alteration. Sadly, not much remained of that Fort now and one can only trace some ruins that hardly signify the much-talked glory.

It is also believed that after two Ganas or disciples of Lord Vishnu, Jai and Vijai, had gained Mukti or salvation at Shiva Vallabhpur the place came to be known as Ganamukteeshwar. With time, this name is changed to the present Garhmukteshwar.The belief is that during the Mahabharat period, this place was an important centre of trade and also formed part of the capital of Hastinapur state.Garhmukteshwar and its twin city, Brij Ghat is a home of more than 100 temples.It is also known for its big annual fair.
