It's the 12th Jyotirling. I found it not so famous as compared to other Jyotirlings. Hardly took 30 minutes for darshan.

just because it is near Ellora, people visit the temple, Pathetically managed, no camera & mobiles allowed in temple. Men have to remove shirts & enter topless. Grishneshwar only knows who has framed such rules.

Grishneshwar Temple is a place for worshipping Lord Shiva. It's a nice temple and the arrangements are ok however the crowd inside the main place where you do Puja is something that Families with young Children should watch out for.
