An ancient temple named Gopeshwar is located in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. It is known as Gosthal. It is believed that Pashvishwar Mahadev resides in the temple along with Goddess Parvati.

(Skanda Purana, Kedarkhand, Chapter-55, Verse 07-08)
According to this verse, Shiva tells Maa Parvati that this is a scenic place named Gosthal. Where I live with you daily, my name is Pushvishwar. In this place, the devotion of devotees increases. The trident which is our iconography there, is surprising.

If you try to move this trident with strength, it will not be staggered at all, but when touched with junior finger (the smallest finger of the hand) with devotion, the trident vibrates repeatedly.
Dharmadhikari Uniyal told that I have seen this miracle with my own eyes. When I touched the trident with a devout little finger, the two pebbles in the trident were vibrated. However, the trident did not move at all when shaking by hand.
Another sign of Sampravakshyami is Tatra Sureshwari.

Ratikundam ch tratasti namna mallokakikam.
(Skanda Purana, Kedarkhand, Chapter-55, Verse 15)
Lord Shivji was also named Ratishwar at this place, because after Kamdev was consumed, Kamadeva’s wife Rati performed intense penance near a pool here and Lord Shiva gave her a boon that Kamadeva was born as Lord Krishna’s son as Pradyumna. Take it and you will meet them.
Where Rati meditated, that pool was named Ratikund. Also known as Vaitaranikund. Kamadeva is born as Pradyumna in Dwarka and Rati is also reborn as Mayawati.
