This temple has a fascinating history. It disappeared from public memory in the 1920s and was rediscovered in the 1990s when excavations had commenced for a real estate development. Thankfully, the development was stopped and the temple has been restored to its original condition, including a small pond where one can now see fishes and turtles. An unique aspect of this temple is the steady stream of water that flows from the mouth of a Nandi statue on to the idol of Lord Shiva immediately below.
There are a very few places which make you feel connected to the divine by just being there. This is a must visit place to gain such insights, a gist of history and a wonder for the child inside you. The central part of the temple has a pond with tortoises and fishes living in it, which existed even before the excavation of the temple in 1997. The temple has no roof above the central pond, which makes it one of a kind and a bliss in architectural vision.
Wow! This place is awsome. A nice shiva temple in the middle of city.
Peaceful place where Lord shiva rests below nandi looking upon small turtles and fishes.!
