First things first - Mobiles, Camera, Wallets, Belts not allowed inside. So better keep them some place safe. The flower vendors offer the storage space but store your precious mobiles, wallets etc at your own cost. The boys/men have to remove their shirt/tshirt/banyan/ vests etc when entering the temple. These are temple rules that males go bare chest inside the... More

This highly recognized temple will immediately catch your attraction with its architecture. Although it has a lot of recognition, the temple staff has managed to keep things under control at all times.

Grishneshwar is 12th and last Jyotirlinga. It gives you peace & soulful touch. I attended this jyotirlinga on last Monday of Sawan which is the best occasion for any devotee. But it took 04-05 hours for darshan. Either on odd days you can easily get inside. Kids can enjoy as Mandir has huge premises.

The best Architecture of the temple. One must visit the shrine. Best part of it is that the men are to enter in the temple without the shirt. Earlier ladies were restricted to get permission in temple but nowadays both can go and take blessings of holy shivlinga.

Very nice craft on outside walls. No cameras allowed inside. Mandatory for males to remove all upper clothing inside main campus. So go inside if you are ready fir this. Happy travelling!

This is maybe the least prominent jyotirlinga. The temple is small and hardly visible from outside, Only men can perform puja, and that too with bare upper body. We reached around noon on a summer day, and were done within 30 mins.
