Folklore and history
As a travel journalist, Tarun Goel is noted for calling Bijli Mahadev “Electric Mahadev.” The 60-foot staff at the temple is said to have received a blessing from God through lightning. The Shiva linga inside the temple is reputed to need to be repaired with butter and statue after each lightning strike because it is constantly broken into pieces. Because it bears the brunt of each storm, it is thought that the temple shields the valley in this way.
