Lord Neelkantheshwar is surrounded by beautiful waterfalls
Pali (Lalitpur). The Neelkantheshwar Temple, which is located on the Vindhyachal Mountains, about 30 km from the district capital city, is very beautiful and unique. Waterfalls flow on both sides of the temple. Followers of Lord Bhole from near and far come here to have darshan.
The priest of the temple, Azad Puri, says that the Bhoot Bhagwan Neelkantheshwar Temple in the city of Pali occupies its special place among the most important Shiva temples in the district. The approximately 1300 year old temple built by the Chandela kings is the belief center of lakhs of devotees. While religious programs are celebrated here all year round, there is an influx of faith here on Shivratri. The area around the city of Pali is considered a mine for archaeological sites. This temple can be reached by climbing stairs. Waterfalls also flow on either side of the stairs. However, this panorama can only be seen during the rainy season. It is said that this temple is very miraculous. Followers believe that Nandi, who sits here in front of the temple, will only be granted if she says her wish in her ear.
it was a miracle
During the Mughal rule, when Aurangzeb was working to destroy the temples, Aurangzeb’s army came to destroy this temple as well and break the idol of God. Aurangzeb’s soldier struck with a sword to destroy the statue of Neelkantheshwar. For this reason, a stream of milk had flowed out at the point where the statue was injured. When the Mughal army saw this miracle, they left there after paying homage to Bholmath.
Local residents say that the waterfall under this temple stays all year round. No matter if summer, winter or rain. The spring water never dries up. Where does this water come from? Nobody is aware of that either. But there is so much miracle in this water that if you consume this water continuously, your body will stay healthy forever.

In the temple a wonderful three-faced idol of God can be seen on a black stone. This statue was built by the Chandela kings in Navami Dashami Sati. Because of this, the temple does not have a shikhara. The architectural craft of the temple is created on sight. A Mukhi Jyotirlinga is installed on the floor under the Trimukhi statue of Lord Shiva in the temple. Shiva followers consider it the Ardha Narishwar form of Lord Bholmath. Trimukhi Mahesh statue and Ekmukhi Jyotirlinga have special meanings in Hindu scriptures and Puranas.
