Devatīrtha (देवतीर्थ) is the name of a Tīrtha (sacred bathing place) that is associated with the Bhīmeśvara Liṅga (symbolical manifestation of Śiva). This place represents the second of the sixty-four siddhaliṅgas mentioned in the Nepalese Tyasaphu (a folding book or leporello). At each of these spots Śiva is manifest as a Liṅga. Each of these liṅgas has its own specific name, mantra, set of rituals and observances, auspicious time etc.

The auspiscious time for bathing at the Deva-tīrtha near the Bhīma-īśvara-liṅga is mentioned as “māgha-kṛṣṇa-pratipadā māgha-kṛṣṇa-caturdaśī” (latin: magha-krishna-pratipada magha-krishna-caturdashi). This basically represents the recommended day for bathing there (snānadina).
