Grishneshwar Jyotirlinga temple is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas. Also the famous Elora Caves are adjacent to the temple. It do not take much time to wait. So do not pay any extra amount to agents and stand in queue. There is no fee to visit temple.

Initially we didn't realize that this was one of the most famous Shiv Temple. Though it is properly managed inside, the outdoor of the temple needs much improvement.
