4. Sudeha made her sister, Ghushma, marry Sudhama in the desire of having a child. Accordingly, Ghushma gave birth to a son, as the second-wife of Sudama.

5. Soon, the happiness of Sudeha turned into jealousy as Sudhama now cherished his second-wife more.

6. Her jealousy made her throw the baby into the river where Ghushma used to discharge 101 Lingam, as a great devotee of Lord Shiva.

In the end, Sudhama requested Shiva to settle here forever, to which the Lord agreed, situated himself there in the form of Jyotirlinga, naming it after Ghushma. And that’s how Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga came into being.
