About Dhanvantareshwar Temple

Many ancient Shiva Temples could be witnessed in Kashi. one of them is the Dhanvantareshwar Temple. The importance of this Temple is mentioned in.


Lord Shiva was speaking about the numerous holy Teerths (Ponds), Koops (Wells), and shrines in Kashi. Lord Shiva spoke about such locations with ecstatic enthusiasm (Kashi Khand, Chapter 97).

The Shiv Ling is close to Malteeshwar. The devotee gets absolved of all his sins and healed of all his illnesses by worshipping this Ling. Kashi Khand recalls a Dhanvantareshwar Koop (Well) where Dhanvantari, a celestial doctor, threw different prescriptions and medications, including Mrit Sanjivini, an elixir that brings the dead back to life.

The Koop is not visible right now. Kalodak Koop, on the other hand, is close by (Well). Every sickness can be cured by the well’s water. Old-timers assert that Kalodak Koop and Dhanvantareshwar Koop have amalgamated.
