Temple of Lord Shiva

Bhuteshwar Mahadev Temple of Mathura is one of the Shaivite Temples Of Mathura. The presiding deity here is Lord Shiva who is also known as Bhuteshwar Mahadev. This temple faces to the east and comprises of a Shiva Linga which is believed to protect the western part of Mathura. Besides this temple, there is also a temple devoted to Patalesvari Devi, wife of Lord Bhuteshwar. We hired a taxi from Vrindavan for Sight seeing in Mathura. The owner told that taxi will park at janmbhoomi and you have to go here by Rickshaw because it is a narrow and Bazaar Road but driver took via other main road direct to footrest of temple. So be aware.It was early morning and not a Monday so we have a nice Pooja-darshan. A visitable place of Mathura especially for followers of Lord Shiva.
