Mamleshwar Temple information

Mamleshwar Temple

Mamaleshwar is an important place of worship in Pahalgam. The temple dates back to 400 A.D and is mainly devoted to Lord Shiva. Legends say that it was this blessed site where Lord Ganesha was kept as a door-guard to prevent anyone from getting inside. Owing to such facts, Mamleshwar is also referred as Mammal temple (Mam Mal- Don’t go). The presiding deity inside the temple is a Shiva linga with a water-spring. The sacred complex also has a shrine that is entirely festooned with gold, and was put-up during the rule of a former king. The temple is elevated at a height of 8800 ft above the sea level, on the banks of Kolahoi stream, the source of Lidder River. Pay a visit to this pious shrine and rebuild your faith in the almighty.
