Twelve Jyotirlinga Incarnations

द्वादशज्योतिर्लिङ्गावतारवर्णनं नाम द्विचत्वारिंशोऽध्यायः
Twelve Jyotirlinga incarnation description Chapter 42

The three verses in common use are as follows.

सौराष्ट्रे सोमनाथं च श्रीशैले मल्लिकार्जुनम् |
उज्जयिन्यां महाकालमोम्कारं ममलेश्वरम् ||
परल्यां वैद्यनाथं च डाकिन्यां भीमशङ्करम् |
सेतुबन्धे तु रामेशं नागेशं दारुकावने ||
वाराणस्यां तु विश्वेशं त्र्यम्बकं गौतमीतटे |
हिमालये तु केदारं घुश्मेशं तु शिवालये ||
Neither set of verses are in the same order of Jyotirlingas as the numbering given in Chapter 42, where the first four are as in this set of verses, but Kedarnath is the fifth, Bhimashankara sixth, Vishweshwara seventh, Tryambakeshwara eighth, Vaidyanath ninth, Nageshwara tenth, Rameshwara eleventh, and Ghushmeshwara twelvth.
