About
Mamleshwar is considered to be an ancient temple that probably dates back to 400 AD. It is located at just a mile away from Pahalgam town. This temple is devoted to Lord Shiva and stands across the Kolahoi stream up towards the mountain. According to legend, this is the temple where Ganesha was placed as door keeper not to allow anyone to enter the temple without his permission. Mam Mal means don't go, and thus it is also known as Mammal temple. Tourists from across the world throng the temple during their holidays in Pahalgam.

There are two main temples, each lying on either side of the river Narmada. It is better to first visit Mamleshwar jyotirling, which is very ancient and less crowded, and then move to Omkareshwar jyotirling, for which either you can take the boat or cross the river through bridge. Omkareshwar temple is crowded and has market nearby. You can take bath in the river as well, there are ghats for it.

Mamal (Mamleshwar) temple is one of the oldest temples of Kashmir Valley built by king Jayasimha. Set on the bank of River Lidder, Pahalgam, the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is 8' square feet internally and has in front porch supported on the two columns. It is a must visit as far as we are concerned.

Very old & Peaceful Temple must visit and spend some time ..

Google location of this Temple is incorrect , This temple is situated on the hill just behind the Taxi stand pahalgam , behind taxi stand pahalgam cross the river through iron bridge , there is a unit of crpf , behind crpf camp there is hill you might take shortcut if walking ,

# On Google Maps you can search hotel swarg palace .. temple is just 100 meters upside of this hotel .

The temple location is amazing, just at the banks of the river. Calm and serene atmosphere. No one will disturb you, no ponywala, no shawl wala... just sit in peace.

its an old temple and not easy to find. even many locals do not know it. small place and not well marked. no nature and no great view. if u have time u can go n see. but u dont come to pahalgam to see old site unless u like to visit here for religious reason. free of entry with no parking place nearby. u need to have a transport to reach here as its a bit far from the main road. during my visit i found it empty with no locals even near by.
