Manikarnika in Kashi

विश्वेश्वरमाहात्म्ये काश्यां रुद्रगमनवर्णनं नाम द्वाविम्शोऽध्यायः

Lord Rudra’s going to Kashi description in Vishweshwara greatness Chapter 22

सूत उवाच |

Suta Goswami said (to the sages)

ततश्च विष्णुना दृष्ट्वा किमेतद्दृश्यतेऽद्भुतम् |
इत्याश्चर्यं तदा दृष्ट्वा शिरसः कम्पनं कृतम् || 13 ||
ततश्च पतितः कर्णान्मणिश्च पुरतः प्रभोः |
तद्बभूव महत्तीर्थं नामतो मणिकर्णिका || 14 ||

And then Lord Vishnu having seen, (wondered) what this amazing thing is visible. Having seen such a surprise, vibrated (shook) his head.
And then from an ear fell a gem of the Lord (Vishnu) in front. Then (that place) became a great place of pilgrimage (tirtha) by the name of Manikarnika (where the Kashi Vishweshwara Jyotirlinga temple is).
