Neelkanth Mahadev Temple, Rishikesh Reviews

  • This is at very height and one need to be careful while driving. Temple is well kept and peaceful place to visit. Roadside views were awesome. Place is clean so. If you are going make sure you too keep it clean. Avoid polythene and plastic

  • Good Place. People having physical challenges be aware as you need to climb certain stairs 35-40 overall. No pandas. Only disappointing hing was the way place is maintained. Filth and dirt all around he temple. It's good to read reviews, however none have highlighted the way govt or local people have maintained the place so shabbily specially since it's temple area. Visit date 28th June 2018. Hence a 3 * rating

  • Lord Shiva temple. very famous in Uttarakhand. you can visit with family and friends... approx 65 stairs. private taxi stand available... from Rishikesh INR 130 to fro per person shared taxi available

  • It is a holy place. 22 km far from Rishikesh, uttarakhand, India. Situated at hill top. Beautiful and Charming place. If you love to be religious and love of hill, must go here.

  • Its a very serene and calming place. You have to spend hours waiting to reach here no matter which way you go. I had a very nice and calming experience here. I went with my family and known ones. The ride to temple was smooth and after reaching the first thing i noticed is the crowd was overwhelming and enthusiastic. I would suggest everyone to visit this place once.
