Neelkanth Mahadev Temple, Rishikesh Reviews

  • A Hindu temple of Mahadev. Located on the top of the hills. One can go there by own car or public travel vehicles. It costs around 80-100 bucks each. You will be scared if you look outside as car reaches around destiny. Way is narrow, journey is tough but determination of a devotee is no less. For me it was a nature's heart place. Lovely sun set view!

  • Amzing place. There is a temple of lord shiva. But i love this place for its beautiful view from top of the mountain and it's natural beauty. But the road is very dangerous and narrowed.

  • श्री नीलकंठ महादेव मंदिर देवभूमी उत्तराखंड के धार्मिक शहर ऋषिकेश से 27 किलोमीटर की दूरी पर स्थित लगभग धरातल से 1060 मीo ऊचाई पर प्रकृति कि गोद मे बसा हुआ है। जो मन को एक अदभुत सा शाँति मिलता है। मंदिर पुरी तरह दक्षिणी शैली से बनी हुई है.. 👇 यहाँ जाने के लिये ऋषिकेश से प्राइवेट टैक्सी आसानी से मिल जाएगी .।

  • This Hindu temple mentioned on multiple ancient Granth. This temple is related to lord Shiva. Easy to reach, multiple and frequent cabs are available to reach from Hrishikesh. Temple loaded with great nature view and weather. Multiple waterfalls and water streams makes this route to so eye catching and breath taking.

  • This is really lovely place in rishikesh uttrakhand...... Too much Hill's and river.... Oh! Amazing place...I love my India
