Nageshwar temple, located between Dwarka & Beyt Dwarka is one of the 12 Jyotirlings of Shiva. It is a powerful Jyotirling that protects all Shiva Devotees.
The origin of this Jyotirlinga dates back to the Shiva Purana where a demon Daruka had imprisoned Supriya a staunch devotee of Shiva. Daruka was granted an immortality boon by Shiva’s wife Parvati. When Daruka tried to kill Supriya, Shiva appeared in the form of ling and offered protection. Since then, Nageshwar Jyotirling offers protection to all Shiva Devotees from all forms of illness.
Rudrabhishek is a special that is performed to the recital of several shloks and mantras. This is done with Panchamrut a mixture of Curd, Honey, Ghee, Sugar & Milk.
This is performed when Shiva is in his Rudra Avatar. The abhishek involves washing the Shiva Linga with water continuously pouring over the lingam.
