The temple is built in dedication to Rishi Bhrigu. The shrine is believed to be where the ashram of the Sage was situated. It is believed that Bhrigu Rishi wrote first Indian Astrological work, Bhrigu Samhita at this very spot of the shrine. He is said to have documented five million horoscopes in the book. It is also believe that, it was here the great saint told Ganesh Purana to King Somakanta.
The temple of Bhrigu Rishi is divided into two sections. The first part houses Bhrigu Rishi, Jamadagni Maharishi, Renuka Mata and Parasurama, Lord Ganesh idols. The second part, which is the core of the temple, is again divided into two portions. One portion has Lord Narayana idol, four vedas in the form of Shiva lingas, and idols of Dashavataras. The second portion contains Jwaleshwar mahadev, who was worshiped by Bhrigu maharishi. Ganesh, Hanuman, Lord Narayan and Lakshmi mata, Vallabhacharya deities are also present in this room.

For most Hindus, praying at temples far and near, is not just for a fleeting sense of gratification but an eternal drive of their devotional self. We worship the divine presence in our idols and the reverberating essence of holiness in our temples. The unflinching faith of the devotees have turned many of our religious places into sanctums of all powerful energy. Pilgrimaide is first of its kind platform in the world to provide its users with comprehensive, consistent and consolidated access to information on various pilgrim destinations.
