Do hire a guide when you visit this temple. They will start off with Rs 100, however you can bargain to come down to Rs 50 or Rs 70. The guide will give you good info about the place & the hidden faces, symbols in the mountains or near the temple. Without a guide it will just be a small... More

Jata Shankar provided a very different view and experience. I had seen many temples which were on hill tops etc, however it was the first experience for me where we had to go down from the hill to go to a temple. Nice place, should go.

A descent of some 200 steps will take you to the Jata Shankar cave. Look above to see vertical sides of the sandstone mountain. You have to crouch to take a pradakshina in the cave temple. Lovely place.

Old rocks, we saw the Giant squirrel while going downwards to see the Shivling. You get amazing Lahsun ka Tel (Garlic oil) which helps in curing headaches even migraine to a great extent. We got our first small bottle from Jatashankar in 2009 and since then have been using the same for headaches.

An ancient temple, where you would find the hills in the shape of lion, Hanuman, snake. Numerous Shivlings are there inside the cave. Water keeps flowing inside it through out the year. Don't dare to go deep inside the cave as you may step on one of the snakes which live there.
