KAPILESHWAR MAHADEV MANDIR, VEED

KAPILESHWAR MAHADEV MANDIR, VEED

The famous Kapileshwar Mahadev lies 6 kms from Vaav, at a place called Veed. Every Monday, large numbers of devotees flock to this temple.



It is believed 5000 years ago, during the period of the Mahabharata, the great scholar Kapil Muni constructed this temple. It is said that after performing a taap in this area, Kapilmuni considered this to be a perfect place for a taap, and so he set up a temple of Lord Shiva (Mahadev) here.



On seeing the importance of this temple, the Pandavas, who were traveling in the jungle decided to rest here. Yudhishthir had a habit of never eating before he had prayed to Lord Shiva. As this place facilitated this habit of his, the Pandavas stayed here for a long time.
