Kandukeshwar Temple, Varanasi

They came to the ground, assumed the guise of Shiv Gans and started approaching Goddess Parvaty. Lord Shiva who was watching these people, with divine sight, could easily recognize the evil designs of the two unwanted guests. He signalled Goddess Parvaty, who took the hint. With great force, she threw the ball at the demons who died instantly.
After slaying the evil demons, the ball touched the ground and took the form of a Shiv Ling. This Ling came to be called as Kandukeshwar.
Kashi Khand, Chapter 65 states that Goddess Parvaty blesses the devotees who worship Kandukeshwar. Besides, Goddess Parvaty herself worships this Ling daily. Both Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvaty bless the devotees of Kandukeshwar.
