The temple as such is pretty amazing to the north Indian standards. But if you have been to the amazing bigger temples in south India with a lot of stone works you might find this not so much worth visiting. So its more over to a religious visit. The entry is free but photography is strictly prohibited. There are problems... More

Its a temple devoted to Lord Shiva and showcases some to finest medieval architecture. We arrive almost 30 minutes before the scheduled opening time and found that there is no proper direction...

A wonderful architecture temple dating back to 910 AD. The temple was established by Bappa Rawal, the pioneer king of Mewar. The good part was that Bappa Rawal was a akin disciple of Yogi Harit Rishi. Bappa Rawal used to regular Kriya Yog practice. With a distance of 5 kms from the temple resides the place where Yogi Harit Rishi... More

Absolutely amazing temple. The feeling of connecting to God is surely there at Lord Eklingji Mahadev Temple. What amazing structure and what history. The sound of locals singing bhajans, playing musical instruments fills up the arena and makes the darshan feel much more real. The royal rulers of Udaipur - I salute to your spirit. The royal family consider Lord... More

We drove down to Eklingji - Temple complex is old but magnificent and we usually prefer to visit it during our trips to Udaipur.

A conglomeration of temples built by the various kings over a period of time, next to each other. Their dedicated reverence to Shivalinga is visible in plenty.

This is a must visit temple site. Very beautifully carved and extremely unique. If you are from outside India, this place will be especially interesting to you. Must visit.

The magnificent architecture of Eklingnath Temple is simply remarkable. The double-storied temple looks awesome with its pyramidal style of roof and distinctly carved tower. The outer walls of the temple are stretched with steps that descend touching the serene waters. Inside the complex, the main temple is a huge pillared hall or 'mandap' that is sheltered by hefty pyramidal roof.... More

It's definitely different in architecture from the usual North Indian Temples. This Hindu religious Temple of Shiva has much influence from the South Indian Temples, with Gopura structure similar to the Temples in South of India/ & some Jain Temples Quite ancient in looks with Good number of Shiv Ling's around . Just about 20kms from Udaipur city, Surely worth... More
