  • Aundha Navnath is Tenth jotirlinga of Lord Shiva. Lakhs of devoty visited this temple, this is a Holy temple of Hindu community. It is a story of Mahabharata, that punch Pandav established this temple.
  • Beautiful Temple, Historic but not clean and Pujari are Rude.
  • I visited the place for jyotirling darshan from delhi. People of the place are so rude with us... they don't even know how to serve the tourist.. please don't spend night here... just have your durshan and leave the place
  • During the moghuls period the main temple is covered beneath a floor so that during their invasion main deity is un touched and not harmed. One has to crawl down 10-12 steps to take Lord shivling darshan. Very interesting place and must visit. I have been there twice.
