    Why to visit this place

    Grishneshwar Temple at Ellora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of India's 12 Jyotirlingas. This Jyotirlinga in Aurangabad, also known as Ghrneshwar or Dhushmeshwar Temple, is devoted to Lord Shiva and is a popular pilgrimage destination. Grishneshwar is the smallest of the Jyotirlingas and is regarded as India's final or 12th Jyotirlinga. The Grishneshwar Temple is open to anyone, however men must be bare-chested to enter the Garbhagriha (the main shrine containing the Shiva Linga). It is also one of India's unique Jyotirlingas where worshippers can touch the Shiva Linga with their bare hands
