Its historically famous as Lod Shiva Temple, but now a days people utilise the near by area as picnic spot, quite far from the city's heart. but worth visit.

This place is very scenic. Good for early evening like 4-5 pm in the afternoon. Very nice sculptures are made here which are worth a watch.

At present, there are only 18 temples existing, out of them only 4 temples are in good condition. About 300 years... More
