Did Gujarati king of Mahim build Babulnath Mahadev Temple?

Bhimdev II, who was also known as Raja Bimba ruled his kingdom from present day Mahim in Mumbai in the 11th Century. He is said to have come from Anahilwads-Patan in Gujarat. Other historians say that he came from the family of Deogarh-Yadava dynasty. Raja Bimbdev was a staunch worshiper of Somnath Mahadev. 

The king originally built the Babulnath Mahadev Temple that for some reason fell into disuse. The original idols were accidentaly discovered by some devotees in 1600 and the Gujarati merchants in the area pooled their resources and rebuilt a temple to house the Shiva Linga, Ganesh, Hanuman and Parvati. The temple was expanded to its present size in 1890 by donations of merchants and a big donation from the Maratha king of Baroda Gujarat Maharaja Sayajirao Gaikwad. 

Thus Maratha king of Guajarat helped rebuild a temple that is originally said to have been built by a Gujarati king of Maharashtra.

May Lord Babulnath Shiva bless us with knowledge, abundance and health. Har Har Mahadev! Jai Mata Di!
