About Mankameshwar Mandir

The most interesting thing about this temple is that it had India's first women priest Arunima Singh. She was honoured as the Mahant or chief priest of the temple when she was 25 years old. It is one of the most popular temples in Lucknow. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple is said to fulfil everyone's wishes. Located on Saraswat Ghat, the temple has a beautiful location. It lies beside River Yamuna and has the serenity of an ancient temple. Monday is particularly popular in this temple because it is considered an auspicious day here. Therefore, the temple attracts visitors in hordes. The temple is also located close to some popular monuments in Lucknow.

Historical Context: This was the first temple in India to get a woman as the chief priest.
