Great history

Its a temple of lord shiva situated 4 kms away to the Rudraprayag city. Its a very beautiful place to visit, situated along the mighty river alaknanda. Its said that hundreds of years ago there were a thousands of shivling present in this temple. Its very cool and calm place and a large cliff remain standing along the other side. In monsoon sometime the river goes up high coming upto the stairs of the temple but otherwise its a very secure place.
