Neelkanth Mahadev Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Nilkanth, an aspect of Lord Shiva. The temple is about 32 km from Rishikesh in the Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand, India. The temple architecture is very much influenced by the Dravidian style of temple architecture.

Neelkanth Mahadev Temple is a sacred and famous temple located 32 km from Rishikesh. Scenically situated on a hill Neelkanth Mahadev Temple is one of the most popular temples of Lord Shiva.
It's a crowded place so plan accordingly. If you want to avoid queues better visit between 5.30 to 6pm (as post this time temple is closed for evening Aarti) as the visitors are very less and almost no queues. During day time long queues are there and cabs/buses will drop you around 1km before the temple although walkable distance but for elderly it will be stressful.

Bad quality small road leading to temple, parked our vehicle along the road in front of the temple gate. The area leading to temple, and the area outside the temple was not clean. Stray animals were there. The place needed attention of management and the government. The temple is around 1.5hrs car travel from Rishikesh through beautiful views of rivers and the hills. The temple closes for 30 minutes at 10:30am. Check the Darshan timings once you reach there. The Prasad Thali ahs several items, Ganga Jal for Shiv Linga, Moli (red thread) and Dhoop is for Sidh Samadhi Stal and Adjacent place outside the temple. Ask the priest inside the temple before offering the items to Shiv Linga. One can read the temple history on the stone plates installed there.

One of the shrine of Mahadev situated in the valley of Trikoot mountain at Pauri gharwal, 25 km drive from rishikesh city and 12 km walking trekking as well.

Best time to visit weekdays to avoid heavy crowd.
There is a hotel name Red Fox Hotel just atProximity of 100 meters .

Beautiful views on the way. Long walk from the taxi stand. The prayer items are not all offered or necessary on the inside so make a call on. Too much plastic pollution and rubbish thrown about on the way in.

We have been for 1st time, it is awesome place for worship of Mahadev.
But beware of free parking they will stop you 2 Kms before the temple & will ask you to buy pooja thali or some offerings instead.
The time for darshan is from 8.00 am to 5 pm bcoz of Corona.
Whole day devotees arrive here.

A must visit Lord Shiv temple and is one of the twelve Jyotirlingaas. This temple is situated in the state of Uttrakhand and is about 30 kms. from Rishikesh. You can drive your car to this place or hire a cab from Rishikesh. Road condition is ok so I would suggest to hire a cab instead going through your own car. The way from Rishikesh to the temple is quite picturesque. You will see beautiful river Ganga and then the hills. You can also see people doing rafting and camping through your way. Once you reach to the temple, you can buy prasaad from the shops situated around the temple. You can do jalabhishek of Lord Shiva also though you will not get much time for the prayer but the time you are spending there is not disappointing at all. You have to follow the queue for your turn. All in all a good and must visit place.

This January I visited Rishikesh with a friend and decided to trek down from Neelkath Mahadev to Laxman Jhula. Neelkanth Mahadev over the years have begun attracting increasing religious tourism and so the no of increasing vehicles and people especially in this time of the year. Interesting feature of the temple is its construction style of similar temples as in TamilNadu & Kerala.

My main plan was to walk down so I took the trail which pilgrims were using on foot. This was earlier a light walk. I can see new construction to exploit the growing popularity of the place. This had led to deforestation and trashes on the pathways. However, after the mid-way the dense forests full with monkeys and long tailed langoors were a treat to watch. Some forest living villages selling snacks with tea was a great experience.
