You will be given a chance to touch Siv Baghavan and do the Pooja. Normally you won't get such chance in South Indian temples. (That the best part as we travel so for this Right).

It's a very small temple and not maintained properly. It will look very crowded even when there are not many people. It is very close, around 400-500 m from Ellora caves.

Like any famous Indian temple, it teems with devotees. Queues can be serpentine at times. Very near to Aurangabad and Ellora. Before embarking on the visit, check when and when not to. Avoid going on government holidays. Not a very spacious place, so plan accordingly....More
