Create an itinerary including Atibaleshwar madir
Often overlooked by tourists, Atibaleshwar madir remains a small and very old temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Legend has it that the temple was built on the request of two demons, Mahabal and Atibal, killed by Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. A large statue of sacred Nandi bull guards the entrance to the temple, located at the end of a narrow passageway between roadside shops. The temple remains part of a larger temple complex that includes three more shrines, and it was probably the first one built.

  • Nice temple to visit. Takes time about 30 minutes to cover the place. Location is spacious & temple is made of old stone. There are couple of other temples nearby as well.

  • It's a small mahadev temple near old mahableshwar. Panchganga, Atibaleshwar and old Mahabaleshwar are near by each other.

  • This place is serene, because most tourists ignore it. If you are inclined to pray in isolation do visit.
