Construction of the 65-feet-tall Lord Shiva idol and the temple started in 1994. On February 26, 1995, on the auspicious day of Maha Shivaratri, the Shiva Temple was inaugurated. Sri Shankaracharya of Shringeri (who is believed to be the incarnation of Lord Shiva himself) dedicated the Shiv Mandir to the public.
Since then the Shiva Temple has become a revered spiritual destination. People come here with the belief that their problems will be solved after touching the Shiva idol here. And their problems do disappear.
Year after year, with Lord Shiva’s blessings, the temple has been transformed into a destination of faith where prayers are answered. Today the temple attracts millions of devotees not only from India but all around the world.
