  • It is a Devotional place . It's famous for lord Shiva's home . There is very beautiful scenery ever . This place is perfect for group tour . Fun unlimited for youngsters. There is very high mountains. Coolest super things are there.

  • The roads are not good but the place is really great feels awesome. It nearly about 24 know from rishikesh taxi stand. But when you enter the temple rush out here. All people want to jump over u to go for darshan. Crowded. But the temple is really great build. You feels very great. Government should take care this temple as this is one of the very great temples.

  • It's a Shiva temple near Rishikesh. Takes around an hour driving from Rishikesh. Beautifully built and peaceful place. After you park your vehicle, you have to walk for a bit through stairs to reach the temple. There are many shops to buy prasad and souvenirs. Restroom facilities are also available on the way to the temple.

  • Situated at the land of God's. 30 km from हरिद्वार, beautiful places, scenes come during trip, resorts are also there, rush during सावन season. But nothing worry, it's our work to reach महादेव.. Jai shiv shankar.

  • Nice place near Rishikesh. There is parking problem here due to hills on one side, so try to visit early in the morning if traveling by own vehicle. Else public transport is also available from both Haridwar and Rishikesh.
