Xuanzang
(631–641 AD) visited this region. The ruins of the large settlement of those days are still near the city.[2] Kashipur is named after Kashinath Adhikari, the founder of the township and governor of the pargana, one of the officers of the Chand Kings
Chand Kings
of Kumaon in the 16th-17th century.[3] Poet Gumani wrote a poem[4] on this town. Girital and Drona sagar are well-known spots and are associated with the story of the Pandavas. The Chaiti mela[5] is the best known fair of Kashipur. Today Kashipur is an important industrial township. In autumn (after monsoon) one can see the snowclad peaks of Trishul and its surroundings. History[edit] According to the Shiv Puran Bhima Shankar Jyotirlingam is in Kamroop. After seeing historic and spiritual books, it is called the place of Bheem Shankar Jyotirlingam. The reason for this is after looking to many of the spiritual books we come to know that this place was known as Kamroop. In Mahabharata time this place was also known as Dakini. This was the reason Adi Shankaracharaya has illustrated the place by saying "Dakiniyam Bhimashankaram". Its existence is also described by Kalidas in his "Raghuvansh". Hence we have to believe that this is the Kamroop Desh. The reason for the name Dakini

is the forests which has gone from Saharanpur

but as she lived in a devil posture she was called a Devil.[6] The lingam of this temple is very large and touching the whole ling with two human hands is impossible. This kind of lingam is not present in any other part of the country. It is believed that it rises and till now it has reached second floor. After seeing many facts we can say this temple was built around 302 AD. It include a BharavNath temple and a Kund known as ShivGanga Kund; in front of this kund is the river Kosi. West is a temple of Maa Jagdamba Bhagwati Balsundari, and every year in month of chaitra a huge fair is organized here. A place known as kila describes the historic nes of this temple. This is the kila where Guru Dronacharya gave teaching to Kaurava and Pandava Guru dronacharya motivated Bheemsen to reconstruct this temple which later was known as Bheem Shankar. Shravan Kumar rested here. West to this kila is Dronasagar which was also built by pandavas for their guru Dronacharya. The lingam is too fat so people here named it "Moteshwar Mahadev". Shree Moteshwar (Bheema Shankar) Mahadev is regarded as one of the 12 Jyotirlinga

of Lord Shiva. Information about this temple is also referred in Mahabharat[1] Shiv Manokamna Kund is adjacent to the temple.[7] There is a Bhimashankar Temple
