  • This is shiva jyotirlinga adjacent to Ellora caves. This is last jyotirlinga and can be travelled from Aurangabad in 3 hours. One can take tour to Ellora and then Grishneshwar and return back to Auran...  more »

  • The temple is great and surprisingly clean and luckily when i visited it wasn't crowded. So I had a great experience. No electronics and leather goods are allowed inside the temple. There's locker facility outside the temple where you can lock your belongings. Males will have to go completely naked above waist if they desire to enter. For women no such rule obviously.
  • One of the most beautiful temples of Lord Shiva but the uniqueness comes to life when the guard tells you to remove all the upper clothes (ONLY MEN). Yes, strange but seriously when you go inside the temple the feeling is incredible. Very peaceful and the best part is that it is not very much crowded (but sometimes it is).

  • Getting drown into devotion Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga Temple, one may get complete peace of mind, worshiping lord shiva temple complete the trip one itself, but this place is really beautiful.  you can stay as you like to spend. 🙏 this is really very reasonable place
  • Men must remove their clothes on upper body before entering the main temple, temple is neatly maintained, you will get ample amount of time to touch the 'Linga', locker facility is available to deposit your phones outside temple, be very careful with the flower vendors and other shop keepers, they will attract you with a very lucrative price for a particular stuff but will try to fool you by adding something and making the final bill 5X to 10X then the actual price...
