Unlike other temples in India, no long queues, no pressure for the mandatory puja. We did not do any puja, just went in and came out after doing a simple namaskar

This temple is thousands year old. The Shivling here is called Rudraksh Shivling. Very peaceful place. The Krishna aai Temple, Atibaleshwar temple and the PanchGanga temple are nearby this temple.

This is a 5000 yr old temple, possibly built by the Pandavas while in exile. Very powerful vibrations can be felt here. Very clean and nice place to visit. Don't miss the krishna devi temple that is just 2 mins walk down the hill. The valley view from this temple is too good to be true.

People go to visit hill station but don't visit our heritage. This temple is thousand years old and a peaceful place. Confluence of three rivers in the temple is worth watching. Though temple is not in very good condition but you will really cherish to visit and feel calmness sitting inside the temple.

This is the only famous temple by name mahabaleswar seen in the visit. The linga here is in the form of rudraksha, one can notice this with observation or enquiry. Darshan takes only half an hour time well connected to the market and is the part of tourist package. Enjoy.
