  • Peaceful and tranquil surroundings. Went in the morning and it was such a wonderful experience. Pure Bliss...
  • Superb place.. Lord Shiva Nageshwar Jyotirlinga, one of the twelve Jyotirlingas. Its historical, peaceful and magnificent temple.
  • Beautiful temple of Shiva located in gujarat. It is said as one of the jyotirling. However, same jyotirling is said to be situated near nanded in Maharashtra also. Tall idol of Lord Shiva here is amazing.
  • As per Hindu religion there are 12 sacred spots of the god mahesh aka Shankar, mahesh, shiv, natraj etc. This spot is one of them called nageshwar(god of snakes). God Shankar carries cobra in his neck, sacred river Ganges Flows from his head after being destined for earth from heaven. Must visit place for every Hindu. Every human being must see all the 12 jyotirling in India.
  • Good thing we found about this temple is they put a multistory box-house for bird's nests. Temple is made by late Gulshan Kumar. It was also not so clean. You can find street food outside the temple premises and also local transportation towards Okha and Gopi lake.
