Very clean temple complex
Nov 2019
This Kankhal temple complex is very clean and adjacent to an ashram. Here shivling is made of mercury and called Paradeshwar Mahadev. Maha Mrityunjay temple is also there in this complex and a Rudraksh tree.

Pit stop on your way to/fro Kankhal
May 2019 • Family
We passed the place on our way back from Kankhal, and it seemed alluring. So we took a pit stop, had a snack at the restaurant nearby and then visited this temple. Our guide-cum-driver told us about the Rudraksha tree inside. And we had spotted the Mrityunjay shivalinga from the road outside. That temple looked beautiful. So the parad shivling came as a surprise. Its a beautiful place, very well maintained. Afternoons can be harsh. But they had laid carpets to walk on, to protect bare feet from the sun. Overall, worth a visit - and spend some time inside...

Holy Temple

The temple is one of the place having Shiv Linga made from Mercury. The place is no doubt pious but has lot of scope for improvement. The interference by so many Pandits could be avoided.

This temple is situated inside hari har ashram premises it also has Rudraksha tree, it is said that the shiva lingam is made up of mercury but how to check whether this is really made of mercury or not that is not known. Just have darshans roam around and move on.

Holy temple of Lord Shiva - Mercury Linga
Aug 2017 • Friends
This happens to be a unique Shiva Temple where the Shiva Linga has about 150 Kgs of Mercury. The temple shrine has a Three Faced Rudraksha tree & the very existence of a full blown Rudraksha tree in itself in such a plain land is a mystery.

It is believed that this Mercury Shiva Linga can cure all the diseases of the patrons if they pray with honesty & belief.

The temple is also called Maha Mrityunjay Temple, Harihar Ashram, Para Shiva Linga etc. In Indian languages like Hindi or Bengali, Mercury (chemical symbol Hg) is know as Para or Parad.

The temple is not very crowded & it is always possible to have a quiet & peaceful Darshan
