Assisangameshwar Temple is a beautiful marble temple located close to Assi Ghat
, the merging point of the rivers Ganges
and the Assi. The temple has an old Shivling
that draws a large number of devotees. This huge shivling is positioned under a peepal tree. During the ritual journey called ‘Panchatirthi Yatra', devotees usually take bath in the Assi Ghat prior to entering the temple.
According to myth, the holy ghat was formed by the sword of Goddess Durga who defeated demons Shumbha and Nishumbha. A Kali Temple is located nearby.
