The Bhimeswar Dwadas Jyotirlinga Dham, one of the Jyotirlingas, is located at Dakini hill (also known as Daini pahar) near Pamohi in Guwahati. It is situated at the hill just besides the Deepor Beel. It is believed that Lord Shiva had incarnated here to destroy a devil called Bhimasura and protect his devotees.The exact location of Dakini is a debated subject. The Shiva Purana and the Koti Rudra Samhita refer to Bhimashankar Jyotirlinga on Dakini hill. Bhimeswar dham at Pamohi is interpreted by the devotees to be the same Dwadas Jyotirlinga. Bhimashankar dham of Pune is also referred by some people as the Dwadas Jyotirlinga.There is no temple here. Instead there is a hill stream surrounding the Shiva Linga and one can observe continuous water flowing over the Linga. There is also a Lord Ganesha temple on the half way to this dham. The road leading to the linga is very beautiful with hills, streams and bamboo grooves.
