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.

    Pretty Little Ancient Temple
    Very old Shiva Temple with a small pond. Looks beautiful. Some guy in that area would open the sanctum doors for Dharshan. The place has a really good vibe. A good spiritual change among all the touristy things we might do in Kashmir.

    This is an ancient shivji temple in pahalgam. Currently, it is a small temple alongwith a small kund in front. Must visit temple if you are visiting pahalgam. the garbh grah is still vibrant.

    A divine place of worship, with a rich and ancient mythological history. Serenity and Divinity at it's best
    A divine experience, given the rich legacy of Indian mythology. The serene ambience and a very simple place of worship, makes it a must visit. The ancient architecture adds to the divinity of this sacred place, per the scriptures. Would not miss it for the world.

    A temple with small campus
    The significance of this temple is the age and how it was built. Go there to fulfil your curiosity. Also, a must visit if you are religious. I felt good vibes being there. It is part of the city so not far. Om namah shivay!

    Serene and soulful
    Small temple - on a hill and not visited at all. Believed to be the place where Shiva re-attached the head of Ganesha back to his body. No one was there (including the preist) when we visited. It was really quiet and peaceful and serene. We drank the pure water that flows from the mountain into this temple and spent some time contemplating the Almighty. This temple welcomes people of all faiths and has great curative powers for those who have faith and believe.

Quite, quaint, serene....... please drop by for 10 minutes to pay your respect. These may be last of the few old hindu artefacts left in Kashmir. In few years there may be none.

This is an ancient Shiva-Parvati temple protected by ASI and the devotees can offer puja. This temple has great significance for the Hindus. As per the story, this is the place where Ganesh got the elephant head after an enraged Shiv beheaded his son not knowing who the child was guarding his wife Goddess Parvati. The temple is open from 9 am to 6 pm daily. It is short distance from the pony stand of Pahalgam on the other side of Lidder river . Please do not use Google to find the location of this temple since it would take you to all wrong places but not the temple.

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.
