The residents of Bakawa settled on the banks of Rewa have made this point worthwhile.
It is said that every kankar of Narmada is like Shankar.
This tradition of giving special workmanship on the stones to the shape of Bakawa Shivling and on the basis of this, this tradition of feeding your family is about 150 years old.
According to the villagers, Ahilyabai Holkar got the first Shivling made from the villagers in village Bakawan.
After this this practice started and the villagers established this work as a business.
Alam is that the Shivling here is not only exported to the country but also abroad.
GST is levied on the import and export of goods in other states, but the Shivling here does not come under the purview of GST in the country. If Shivling goes out of the country then three percent GST is levied.
According to the villagers, the annual turnover on Shivling here is more than 20 lakhs.
