This is very nice place in midest of nature. One of the Jyotirlingas. People come here for tracking too. It is small temple but with strong divine vibes.

Excellent facilities for the visitors. I find it awkward to review an ancient jyotirling temple. All i can say is it was a pleasure to visit the temple and do Rudrabhishek. I feel blessed.
