  • I spent an hour here. This is Lord Shiva's temple which is very uniquely built. It was built and run by the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (EME) corps of the Indian Army. This temple is a major attraction for both tourist and devotees in Vadodara, Gujarat. It is one of its kind in the world. Before going to visit everyone must bring a valid identity card with them without ID proof you can't go inside.
  • The Temple's structure is simply brilliant. It is completely maintained by Army. At the entrance, you will have to deposit your I.D. before you proceed to visit the temple. There is a separate car parking just next to the temple so people won't have to walk much.
