The temple is dedicated to Lord shiva, and it is from this temple that the place gets its name. The temple is well kept and there are shops lined around. There is also another Shiv temple, Atibaleshwar temple in the same place. (and further ahead is the Panchganga temple). The Linga in this temple is said to be a swayambhu (originated on its own), but for me it looked just like a rock's top. Nevertheless, pooja is offered in this temple as old as 4000 yrs or more. The drive to the place is also very beautiful and scenic.
Would hardly take about 15 to 20 minutes to cover this place, and hence, you may not want to miss this place on your visit.
