KOTESHWAR MAHADEV MANDIR, AMBAJI

KOTESHWAR MAHADEV MANDIR, AMBAJI

The auspicious Koteshwar Mahadev Temple is situated 5 kms beyond the famous temple of Ambaji, 64 kms from Palanpur.



The Aravalli Mountains, the origin of the River Saraswati, and this temple combine to create an aura of holiness and beauty. Situated 64 kms from Palanpur, the Koteshwar Mahadev temple is about 600 years old. The Bhargava Rishi's Ashram and Valmiki Gufa (cave) lend it a historical feel. There is one kund (pond with steps leading to the water) wherein the River Saraswati flows from a Gaumukh (mouth of a cow carved in stone). Pilgrims take a ceremonial bath here.

Nana Fadanvis Maharaja had stayed in hiding here after the fall of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi during the mutiny of 1857.



This temple was restored a few years ago. There is a Vishnu temple nearby where idols of Sapatamatrukas and Vishnu are preserved.

This Koteshwar Mahadev Temple is an ideal place for devotees to spend time at length due to its peace and serenity.

Nearby is another temple named 'Valmikashram'.
