It is the 12th Jyotirling, if you follow their order. Man has to take out their shirt before entering in to Main area. You can find Ramfal (a fruit) on the way to this Jyotirling.

so you have to pay the loker shops to keep your stuff for five minutes..nice business to fleece innocent tourists. they can ban the baggage of tourists but they cant give a free locker as they know they can make money out of it when someone just comes to a tourist place with mobile and hand bag and ladies purse.....

I think the best time to visit temple is in the morning before 10a.m or a weekday. By the time we came back it was around 12:30 and the crowd has built... More

Usually I like visiting temples so thought of visiting this.Started from Pune @ 6 and reached by 9.30. Temple n Ellora caves are hardly 50mtrs apart. Inside temple,men have to go topless. It was serene.

The temple is a symbol of our historical story about Lord Shiva and when you visit the place, you can feel Shiva everywhere. One must visit this place and stay blessed! Jai Bhole

This is another temple that i visited when i went to Shirdi. It is another jyotirlinga, which people must visit. The temple is pretty old and clean.Devotees have to take out their shirt before getting inside. The biggest plus point is , you can touch the linga, do jalaabhishekam by yourself. That was a divide experience touching Lord Shiva's jyotirling.... More
