Owner description: Ek means 'one’ while ling means 'lingam or the life-giving a phallic symbol of Lord Shiva'. The Eklingji Temple, one of the popular pilgrimages of Rajasthan is located at a distance of 22 km away from Udaipur. It was initially built by the then King of Udaipur Bappa Rawal, on the side of 72 rooms Jain temple which housed a four-faced statue of Adinath, the first Jain Saint. It stands with the great historic significance dedicated to Lord Eklingji, the benefactor deity of the Mewar clan.

This is very nice and old ancient temple. You can say more than 100 temples are here in the same place. Main temple is dedicated to lord shiva and other temples are dedicated to hindu god.

Made a stop here on our recent visit to Udaipur. The Ekling Ji temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, and comprises of a large temple complex, some of which was originally built in the 8th century, with later additions and repairs. It is also the temple associated with the erstwhile rulers of Mewar, and the family continues to support the temple.

The entire complex is beautiful, and very well maintained. It is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike, and can get busy, though never as busy as Nathdwara temple. Coming here in the morning may be best both from a perspective of crowds and heat.

No handbags allowed inside. Obviously no footwear or photography inside either. No entry fee. Vendors right inside the main entry selling flowers to be offered to the deity.

It’s a quick 30 Min drive from Udaipur, and usually most visitors club it with a trip to Nathdwara temple, which is another hour or so further north. We stopped by here on the morning of our return to the airport, and were extremely glad we did.

This temple opens at 10:30 am and its better to start from Udaipur at 9:45 am to reach on time.

Its historic and must visit place in case you visit Udaipur as a tourist
