A lovely temple - must visit if you are Ellora.
DON'T CARRY YOUR MOBILE PHONE - else you can leave it for ₹5 at the shops outside. Tons of flower and coconut vendors. The temple itself is amazing and divine.

We visited the temple on a Wednesday around 1 pm. Hardly any rush. Mobiles are not allowed and can be stored near the gate. As we enter the premises, men are to remove their shirts. There are special puja and Abhisheks that one can get done. We took Abhishek of Rs 1100 . In this , we sit in front of jyotiling and do puja/ Abhishek with our own hands. It was a divine experience, not to be missed.

Just 500 metres away from Ellora. The power of God. You can book the darshan and the pooja, men enter bare-chested in the shrine

Situated at Aurangabad District near Ellora, Maharashtra, India( is one of the 12 Jyotirlinga,) sometimes referred to as the Ghrneshwar or Ghushmeshwar Temple, is one of the shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva that is referenced in the Shiva Purana.
The temple is one of the masterpiece of Indian architecture, As far as Abhishekam is concerned you need to pay charges in counter of temple. Gents need to wear only lower clothings such as Dhoti or pant. Cloths which is wearable at upper side of body from waste is not allowed if you wish to do abhishekam. Here also You need to take help of Priests . It's on your luck how he is... Ladies need to wear Saree. One Must go place. Har har mahadev.

No words for it. Such a calm place and very well and organized structure. Suggest to visit the place during morning hours before visiting Ellora caves. During noon time it will be hot and crowded.

Very close from the Ellora Caves, can be done on the same trip subject to the crowd at the temple
We encountered a very organised one and a half hour wait to get into the temple
Like all other temples across the country there was a way to get in skipping the waiting time by bribing the security guards (not one but many) waiting inside and outside the temple. Wish this STOPS…
Mobile phones not allowed inside the temple and you need to keep with the shops outside the temple which though is scary but experience says the shopkeeper did a good job

No camera's allowed inside. The roof design and the interior carvings are interesting. Can get crowded on special occasions, so go on non peak day to avoid rush.

It was a great experience visiting the 12th Jyotirlinga.

We visited on a Sunday around 11 am we joined the que and exactly at 12 pm we were right infront of the Shiva Ling and also Aarti happened at that time so we were lucky to witness and stand for few more minutes till the aarti got completed.

We had read earlier reviews about the temple and nearby which helped us a lot.

A few tips:
1. Before buying pooja offerings from outside temple shops fix the price of whatever you are buying, pay them then and there to get the clarity.. As they first say the pooja basket is for Rs 20 but later they add more things like Coconut, flowers, etc and make it of big amount. So keep the things in basket which you want to offer and decide price and pay them there only before entering the temple. So after coming out you just have to return them the basket.

2. Photographers charge exhorbitant rate for 1 photo outside temple. Crazy amount like Rs 180 per photograph. They will say photo is big in size and we will laminate and give hence the price is high. There is a huge scope to negotiate here. Fix the price before clicking any photo from them.

3. We read history of the temple on google and came across a mention about a Kund which is a holy place located few meters ahead from the temple. Have darshan there too if visiting the temple. Also you will see a sign board to visit a Ganesha temple on the way to Kund that is also nice for visiting and offering prayers.

Temple is reachable from Aurangabad city with many options to hire car, auto, bus, etc.. There are very few hotels and lodge available near to temple which you can book if you want to stay for a night as you can cover Ellora caves which is near to the temple. Else staying in Aurangabad city is a preferred option.

Post visiting the temple we had our lunch at Hotel Surya an open restaurant serving Thali and great punjabi dishes. It will come on the way from Temple to Ellora Caves.

Went there during Corona times, so there was no crowd. The temple itself is beautiful with spacious premises. but more than this , it is important as one of the jyotirlingas.

There are bunch of stalls outside where you can get Samagri for puja. I bought puja samagri and also milk packet to be offered at the Shivling. We could not go inside the room where the Shivling is and offer milk ourselves, probably due to Covid protocols. So gave everything to the Pujari to offer on our behalf.

They do not allow mobiles and taking pictures inside the premises.
