There is very much less crowd in temple as compared to other temples. Ellora and ajanta caves is another beautiful place to visit *closed on Tuesday*. It will be better if u r having ur own vehicle.

Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga Temple is the 12th and the last of the Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. It is believed that if you can visit all the twelve Jyotirlingas(which are located in different parts of India), then you attain moksha(salvation) and go straight to Vaikunta(heaven) after death. Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga temple is situated in the perfect back drop of Ellora caves which makes... More

This is very close to Ellora caves, almost walking distance from there so i would say you must visit if you are going to Ellora. There was no rush as such, we got in the queue and got inside the temple in 5 mins. Mobile phones and camera are not allowed inside the temple...there are lockers outside where in you... More

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).

THough I visited other Jyotarlinga like Bheema shankar /Triambakeshwar THis is the one which can be access very easily just before the ellora caves. Howvere a lot needs to be done to upgrade the cleaness at the temple premisis to get rid of foul smell of the diain. Also the temple architecture is good in Hoysala style. If you have... More

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.
