Chakreshwar Mahadev Mandir, Palghar

The Chakreshwar Mahadev Mandir is a very ancient shrine of Lord Shiva. This is a relatively small temple and is noted as the holy place where Swami Samarth performed dhyanam, pratiṣhṭha of a Ram Mandir near-by and blessed a śiṣhya who undertook a sajiva samadhi at this very place.

Sopara is one of the most historically rich cities of Maharashtra. Situated closely to Mumbai and being the coastal place it is. Sopara was an extremely well-to-do port at the western coastline of the country since the beginning of the first millennium B.C. It continued to be so till as late as 15th century A.D approximately.


People aren’t very sure of the time or era when the shrine was built, but most of them agree on the fact that the Chakreshwar Mahadev Mandir is an extremely ancient shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is not a huge one and stands on a small piece of land but it is far and wide well-known as the holy place where Swami Samarth performed his dhyan and pratishtha of a Ram Mandir (temple dedicated to Lord Rama) close by and subsequently he blessed a Shishya who went on to take a ‘SajivSamadh’ at this very place.
