About Shiva Temple, Gulmarg

One of the few remnants from the Dogra Dynasty which is hard to miss from anywhere in Gulmarg, the temple was built by Maharani Mohini Bai Sisodhia, wife of Maharaja Hari Singh. The Queen was known to visit the temple everyday to pray to Lord Shiva.

However, the interesting part of the temple is the Priest who even though is a Muslim by religion, quotes both the Holy Quran and the Bhagvad Geeta. He took up the responsibility of the temple after the natives fled from the area during Militancy. A truly spiritual and human journey awaits its visitors at the temple.

Visit the temple and walk around the area later to take in its beautiful location and peaceful vibe.
