 After the first few batches of Shiv Gans sent to Kashi failed to return, Lord Shiva sent a few more batches of Shiv Gans from Mandarachal to Kashi. (Regarding deputation of Shiv Gans to Kashi, devotees are requested to refer to Kukkuteshwar Ling).These Shiv Gans also decided to settle down in Kashi and they installed Shiv Lings which came to be known after their names. One Shiv Gan named Kshemak installed a Shiv Ling and started worshipping Lord Shiva. This Ling came to be known as Kshemeshwar. Kashi Khand, Chapter 55 states that a devotee who worships Kshemeshwar is cleansed of all his sins and will attain happiness and prosperity.
