Describing how Sri Ram had installed Rameshwar Linga, Sutji said–‘ After killing Ravan, Sri Ram enthroned Vibhishan as the king of Lanka. While returning to Ayodhya he made a brief stop at Gandhamadan mountain. Since the thought of having killed a brahmin (Ravan) kept on tormenting him, he decided to atone for his sins. So, he installed the idol of Rameshwar linga at Rameshwar setu. Rameshwar Linga is so sacrosanct that all the holy places, sages and ancestors are believed to exist within the temple premise of Maheshwar Linga. Being installed by Sri Ram himself,  this  particular  linga  has  special  significance  attached  to  it.  One  who  goes  on  a pilgrimage to this holy place is certain to attain salvation even if he were a ‘Mlechha’ (born in a low caste).
