It is an ordeal getting to the temple, but once you are inside its precincts it is a wonder of architectural splendour. The priests are very kind and you feel truly gratified having been there.

The ancient temple with religious importance (Jyotirlinga). The temple is surrounded by large premises. We had a quiet time in this temple as the rush doesn’t push you away and you can worship peacefully. Male’s have to go shirtless in this temple. The temple is very near to Ellora caves (Aurangabad).

Great temple. It is one of the Jyotirlingas and is really really old! located at a congested place with lot of shops near the entrance. Inside the temple courtyard it is very good, but outside should be made better. Not too crowded in the afternoons.

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.
