  • We were fortunate to visit “Mammal Temple”, with a rich history dating back to the 12th century. Mamaleshwar is among the ancient temples in Kashmir. Set on the bank of River Lidder, Pahalgam, the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple encloses a plinth and a Shiva Lingam, with a sparkling water spring covered by a gorge. According to mythological legends associated with this temple, Lord Ganesha was appointed as its doorkeeper to prevent the entry of outsiders. This is how the temple got its name – comprising words 'mam mal' that means ‘do not go’.
