About Go to Neelkanth Mahadev Temple

Neelkanth Mahadev Temple is one of the most revered temples in the city where Lord Shiva is worshipped. It is also among the most prominent Hindu pilgrimage places and sees a lot of tourists throughout the year. The temple is surrounded by forests and is adjacent to the mountain ranges of Nar-Narayan. The view from this place is magnificent as you get to see nature at its best. However, if you wish to see the opulence of this religious site, visit the temple during the festival of Maha Shivratri. It is an experience of a lifetime to witness the grand rituals and horde of devotees here during the festival.

Historical Context: The temple was built on the same place where Lord Shiva drank poison due to which his neck turned blue
Pro Tip: Be here during the Maha Shivratri festival
