Yama Aditya

 Lord Shiva was at Mandarachal and on that time Kashi was ruled by a very pious and religious King named Divodas. In his Kingdom every one was very happy and there was all round prosperity.

Yamraj installed one Shiv Ling and one idol for Lord Surya in Yam Teerth and performed rigorous Tapas. The Shiv Ling came to be known as Yameshwar and the idol of Lord Surya came to be known as Yama Aditya.
Kashi Khand states that if a person takes bath in Yama Teerth (now Ganges at Sankata Ghat), worships Yameshwar and Yama Aditya, such devotee will never experience the tortures of Hell. (He will reach heaven after his death).
On an auspicious day when Tuesday, Bharani Nakshatra and Chaturdasi (14th day after Amavasya or Poornima) coincide, if a person performs rituals for his forefathers, he will attain all round happiness.  It is believed that forefathers eagerly wait for their descendents to take bath in Yam Teerth and perform the rituals on the aforesaid day.
A person who prays to Yama Aditya and Yameshwar after taking bath in Yama Teerth will always remain happy.
