We visited Eklingji as part of a short half-day trip that included the nearby Sas Bahu temple in Nagda. Eklingji is a really spiritual place, so it is for instance quite crowded with pilgrims early in the morning. There are no views of the temples from the outside, but the inside is beautiful. No photography allowed, you need to lock... More

The many shrines, the main idol, the clanging bells at the arati, the Nandi bull who stores secrets and wishes, - lovely experience. The walls, the ceilings have been painstakingly sculpted and demand attention.

Eklingji is the chief deity of Mewar Kings and somehow can impose that feeling once you visit the temple. The exteriror however is quite simple and does not look anything commensurate to its historical importance. Maybe the Rajasthan tourism can do something about it

You cannot see all the parts of the temple. Some parts are restricted.Parking is a problem. The street is narrow and very congested.

quite an archipelago of small temples... doesn't look much from outside, but gives you an idea about the number of hindu gods... good for a stopover while coming back from nathdwara...

An ancient temple, which houses the reigning deity of the Mewar clan. The four faced shivling has to be seen to be believed. Photography is not permitted. The temple is open for short times during the day and the crowds can get unmanageable. We were fortunate to see it when it was not too crowded.

If you are in the area this is a must to visit! Unlike most temples, this is a structure of many small temples. the use of black marble to blend with white is something different. If you are going to visit this temple a tip: They make you remove your shoes from a long distance to the temple. The pathway... More
