Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
Perched on a hilltop and surrounded by a fortified stone wall, Bhuleshwar Temple dates back to the thirteenth century and has both historical and mythological significance (Goddess Parvati seduced Lord Shiva here by dancing for him). At this non-commercialized, operating Shiva temple, you can offer your prayers and admire the magnificent rock-cut architecture and intricate carvings inside. Pay special attention to overhead wall panels as the only place in India where all the male gods appear in their female avatar. A bird watcher’s paradise, the surrounding area hosts various migratory species during the summer (including tawny eagles). Bring your own food as nothing is available near the temple.

  • You cant imagine its hugeness from outside and its photos. Most of the sculptures are destroyed but then also it attracts you. You can spend 1-2 hours there if you like photography. Club nearby places...  read more »

  • A very nice trip especially the 3km ghat section close to the temple was thrilling. Climate is encouraging to stay for some more time. Carry food stuff if you like as there were no hotels or food stalls available.
  • Very good place for a half day family outing. You'll need to carry food as there is no restaurant nearby.
