Vankhandeshwar Temple

Category Religious

Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Vankhandeshwar Temple is considered to be one of the oldest temples in India, as it is believed that it was built by Prithviraj Chauhan in 1175 AD. There is a flame, known as ‘akhand jyoti’ or ‘eternal flame’ which is believed to have been burning since ages. Every Monday, there is a ‘maha aarti’ at the temple and a big fair is held here every year during the Mahashivaratri festival.
