Karkotak Nageshwar Temple, Varanasi
|Architectural style:||Hindu Temple architecture|
It is worth mentioning here that Karkotak Nageshwar Ling is submerged in the water of Karkotak Well. When the water level recedes or the water is removed for cleaning purposes, the Ling becomes visible. However, as long as the Ling remains submerged in the water, the water in the well attains divinity and people pray this well with all divinity.
However, at the main entrance just before going to the Nag Kuan, there is a temple, where one Shiv Ling has been installed which is worshipped as Nageshwar.
