  • Nageshwar Jyotirling is one of the twelve jyotirlings. Huge temple is built near to Dwarka. There is crowd on Monday and in Shravan month.  more »
  • The visit to this temple can be clubbed with a visit to dwarkadhish temple and both can be visited in a day. The crowd is not like Dwarkadhish temple but still, it will take you at least 20 minutes...  more »
  • Its one of the 12 jyotirlingas, and yet no fancy fanfare and no overcrowding, which allows you to worship lord shiva peacefully.  more »
  • Place of high pilgrimage value(one of the jyotirlinga) very nice to visit. Temple cleanliness is maintained but temple surroundings are not at all clean. No cleanliness is maintained nearby. Govt should impose some strict actions(on people/tourists and govt as well) against it to improve the surroundings nearby.
  • Good temple and atmosphere around temple is also good, but the thing is roads are worst condition, damaged roads, no proper connectivity to reach temple, eminence of temple is good and peaceful. management is good. one thing i don't like about temple is that when we entered into the temple the shopkeepers telling that if you purchase the prasad then only you have chance to touch the ShivLing... means hear also the money matters.
  • Very good place to visit one of jyotiling. Very neat and clean temple. There is no rush. One can perform puja peacefully.
  • One of the must visit places if you are at Dwaraka! Was surprised to see this big well maintained temple in middle of nowhere.... The temple has a long history and very popular with the devotees of lord Shiva. There is a lake behind the temple which is not so clean with much trash 🗑 thrown around and certainly needs maintenance. Otherwise surrounded premises is well kept.
  • This is a bit away from Dwarkadhisha Temple. Unless you have your own means of transport, autos and buses are your best bet, which start becoming available around 9.00 morning time. The roads are pretty bad though, so be ready for a bumpy ride. The temple is quiet and peaceful in the morning with not much crowd. Parking space is plenty. Refreshments stores are available just outside of temple complex. Should be on the visiting list for anyone coming to Dwarka.
