I have not visited many Jyotirlinga temples, but this temple is poorly maintained. Local crowd do indulge in cheap activities. The surrounding area of the temple is dirty and filthy. The main sanctum is also bit noisy. Tip: Do not carry cellphones, camera, leather goods.

After visiting ellora, i had a very quick visit to this Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga temple as it is just 1km away from ellora caves. Temple was good, when i visited around evening time, there was less crowd. Camera, mobiles is not allowed inside the temple. There is no entry fee.

You can visit here on the way to Ellora.. Temple will be closed at 12 pm, so plan your trip so that you don't waste time in the queue.

This Jyotirlinga Temple is right next to Ellora caves, so whenever you are planning the visit, please make sure to plan the cave visit too. Do ask around and also visit Lakshya Vinayak temple too (just 200 mtrs) from Jyotirlinga Temple. Overall a great trip to temple.

This is one of the most amazing human crafted temple in the stone. It is crafted from top to bottom which is very unlikely. Very beautiful and serene place. Camera must. Some rules need to be followed as it being a religious place.

Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga is the last of the 12 Jyotirlingas. This is located very near Ellora caves and around 30-40 kms from Aurangabad city. You are not allowed to take camera and mobiles inside and I didn't even find a place where these can be kept/deposited safely. Everywhere outside the temple boundary is crowded by vendors selling flowers and coconuts, which... More
