 After the few batches of Shiv Gans failed to return, Lord Shiva sent 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 Ling named Panchaksheshwar was installed in the vicinity of Trilochaneshwar.
Kashi Khand, Chapter 55 states that a devotee who worships Panchaksheshwar will always be respected in his community.
