This is one of the Jyothirlinga temle and it is a very nice place to see the great tradition and culture of ancient Indians. But today the temple is a means of earning money. Those who visit the temple please aware that never get cheated.

This is one of the 12 Jyotirlings of India but it is in pathetic condition. Temple entry and temple itself is not in good condition. Surroundings are very dirty. Parking space is too bad.

It is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines.Temple's architecture is very nice.But be careful in rainy season.The area is very muddy.Even the temple premises is very slippery.It is compulsory for the males to remove their shirts while entering the shrine.

Grishneswar is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. is it situated near famous Ellora caves. I felt calm, satified and accomplished after visiting this place. A cult of Shiva follows this more than their life. there are some rules of the temple which one should be aware before visiting this place.

A small, very strong temple dedicated to Shiva. Local plenty of pilgrimage with a Lingam bathed with milk, where men pay homage having to take off his shirt and unable to wear leather belt.
