  According to Shiv Mahapuraan, Brahma (the Hindoo God of Activity) and Vishnu (the Hindu God of Deliverance) formerly had a conflict nearly which one of them had supremacy. To endeavour them, Shibah perforated the terzetto worlds as an limitless construction of airy, the Jyotirlinga. Vishnu and Brahma parted society in inflict to try to feat the extent of apiece end of the supporter. Brahma, who had set off upward, then lied that he had observed the end of the structure, but Vishnu, who had absent in the message of the radical of the champion, admitted that he had not. Shivah then appeared as a endorsement Jyotirlinga and damnable'. The jyothirlinga shrines (the Jyotirlinga state the dominant undividable actuality from which Shiva appears) commemorate and enthrone this second when Shibah appeared as a fiery structure of fluorescent. It was believed that there were originally sixty-four jyothirlingas , twelve of these state reasoned to be especially rosy and sanctified. Each of the dozen jyothirlinga sites takes the calumny of the presiding god and apiece is considered a disunite reflexion of Shibah. At all these sites, the quill person is lingam representing the beginningless and sempiternal Stambha construction, figuration the limitless nature of Week. The dozen jyothirlinga are Somnath in Province(Gujarat), Mallikarjuna at Srisailam in Andhra Pradesh, Mahakaleswar at Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, Omkaresh, Kedarnath in Himalayas, Bhimashankar in Maharastra, Viswanath at Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, Triambakeshwar in Maharastra, Vaidyanath at Deogarh in Jharkhand, Nageshvara Jyotirlinga, Rameshwar at Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu and Grishneshwar at Aurangabad in Maharastra.  
Stories almost the Nageshvara Jyotirlinga ::
The Shivah Purana says Nageshvara Jyotirlinga is in 'the Darukavana', which is an ancient itemize of a woodland in India. 'Darukavana' finds reference in Soldier epics, such as Kamyakavana, Dvaitavana, Dandakavana. There is a content in the Shivah Purana near the Nageshvara Jyotirlinga which tells of a demon named Daaruka, who attacked a Shivah devotee named Supriya and imprisoned him along with many others in his metropolis of Darukavana, a port under the sea populous by seasnakes and demons. At the urgent exhortations of Supriya, all the prisoners started to cantillate the beatified mantra of Shiva and directly thereafter the Noble Shibah appeared and the demon was vanquished, subsequent residing there in the taxon of a Jyotirlinga. And this is how it happened: the demon had a wife, a demoness named Daaruki who worshipped Mata Parvati. As a prove of the demoness Daaruki's uppercase penalisation and devotion, Mata Parvati gave her a majuscule boon: the goddess enabled her to student the woods where she performed her devotions, and the forest she renamed 'Darukavana' in her righteousness. Wherever Daaruki went the woods would examine by the goddess Anapurna. Devi Parvati had given her commonwealth enough to advise the set and so she rapt the intact timber into the sea. From here they continuing their operation against the hermits, capture grouping and obligation them jailed in their new habitation low the sea, which was how that majuscule Shivah devotee, Supriya, had arouse up there.
The comer of Supriya caused a revolution. He set up a lingam and made all the prisoners perform the mantra Om Namaha Shivay in virtue of Shiva patch he prayed to the lingam. The demons' response to the vocalizing was to pioneer to negative Supriya, though they were thwarted by Hebdomad appearing there and handing him a glorious instrument that blessed his period. Daaruki and the demons were people, and the demons that Supriya didn't punish were blest by Parvati. The lingam that Supriya had set up was titled Nagesha; it is the ordinal lingam. Shiva once again taken the form of a Jyotirlinga with the study Nageshwar, spell the Goddess Parvati was glorious as Nageshwari. The Noble Shiva announced there and then that he would feigning the precise path to those who would love him.
Contention nearly the positioning ::
At inform there is disputation on the effective position of the legendary earth of Darukavana, so identifying the Jyotirlinga of Nageswaram remains ticklish. Since there are no additional essential clues in the book as to the activity of the Jyotirlinga , 'Darukavana' remains the indispensable, and only, wrap.
Darukavana, the calumny beingness plagiarised from 'daruvana' [thought plant of deodar trees], is widely thought to subsist in Almora. Deodar (daru vriksha) is found extravagantly only in the southwestern Chain, not in peninsular India. There has been untold tie of deodar trees with Lord Hebdomad in ancient Religionist texts. Hindi sages misused to domiciliate and action reflection in deodar forests to gratify Peerage Shibah. Also, according to the ancient treatise Prasadmandanam,
  "हिमाद्रेरूत्तरे पार्श्वे देवदारूवनं परम् पावनं शंकरस्थानं तत्र् सर्वे शिवार्चिताः।"  
  Because of this the 'Jageswara' temple in Almora, Uttarkhand is commonly identified as Nageshvara Jyotirlinga.
The backhand sanction of Darukavana could be take as 'Dwarakavana' which would direction us to the Nageswara tabernacle at Dwaraka. In fact there is no vegetation in this try of Dwaraka that finds honour in any of the Amerindic epics. In the narratives of Shri Krishna, we conclude cite of Somanatha and adjoining Prabhasa tirtha, but never is there any acknowledge of Nageswara or Darukavana in Dwaraka or thereabouts.
Darukavana power survive succeeding to the Vindhya Mountains. It is south-southwest of the Vindhyas extending to the sea in the western. In the Dvadasha Jyotirlinga Stotra (6),[11] Shankaracharya praised this Jyotirlinga as Naganath:
"Yamye sadange nagaretiramye vibhushitangam vividhaishcha bhogai Sadbhaktimuktipradamishamekam shrinaganatham sharanam prapadye"
This could be understood to intend that it is settled in the southwestward ['yamye'] at the townsfolk of 'Sadanga', which was the ancient constitute of Aundh in Maharashtra, southward of the Jageswara shrine in Uttarkhand, and westerly of Dwaraka Nageshvara.
Legend Behind Nageshwar Temple ::
According to Shiv Purana, a Hebdomad devotee by itemise Supriya was attacked by a demon Daaruka patch in a dish. The demon imprisoned him along with individual others at his grapheme Daarukaavana where he resided with his spouse Daaruki. Supriya advised all prisoners to perform the mantra 'Aum Namaha Shivaya'. When Daruk came to eff around this he ran to termination Supriya. Straightaway Baronage Shiva appeared in the alter of a Jyotirlingam and vanquished the demon with the Paasupata Astram.
This Jyotirlinga manifestation of Shiva is worshipped as Nageswara. Two added sites in Bharat, one close Audhgram warm Purna in Andhra Pradesh and other close Almora in Uttar Pradesh also enshrine temples to Nageswara Jyotirlingam. According to the Shiv Purana, any one who ever with devotion reads the modification and greatness of this Jyotirlinga shall beget all substance healthiness and glorious state in the end.
Structure of Nageshwar Mandir{Temple} ::
Nageshwar Mahadev Sivalingam is facing South while the Gomugam is facing east. There is a story for this position. A devotee by name Naamdev was singing bhajans in front of the Lord. Other devotees asked him to stand aside and not hide the Lord. To this Naamdev asked them to suggest one direction in which the Lord does not exist, so that he can stand there. The enraged devotees carried him and left him on the southside. To their astonishment, they found that the Linga was now facing South with the Gomugam facing east.
