The story behind this Temple

Shivalinga has been installed in the Gasota Mahadev temple for thousands of years. According to Jan Shruti, once a farmer was plowing his field in Gasota village.

 During that time, when the plow collided with an object, there was a stream. Later, when we plow again, the milk comes out.

When the plow collided for the third time, blood came out, then the farmer lost his eyesight. Later, according to the dream the farmer dreamed in this context, the Swayambhu Shivling came out of there and was asked to establish it.

 In collaboration with the villagers, the farmer installed this Shivling in Gasota and demanded a grant for himself which was completed.

According to Janashruti, Pandavas were searching for the place during the unknown habitation. Bhima thought of running a gharat there.

When he started bringing the water of Beas river towards Khurat at night, he felt the sound of someone coming. They thought it was morning. Bhima threw all the belongings of Gharat in the village and went away.

After this, the Pandavas reached the village of Gasota and due to the forest they started raising cows there. Once there was a drought and the cow started to suffer.

When Bhima hit the ground with mace, a water source burst there which has been flowing in the Gasota Mahadev for centuries
