Ancient Shiva Temple
The sanctuary also houses an ancient Shiva temple. The temple devoted to Neelkanth (Lord Shiva) dates back to the 6th-13th century AD. Surrounded by exotic flora, this temple offers an unearthly sight to tourists.
From Kankwari move on to Neelkanth, a temple town near Tehla builds by the Gurjar Partiharas. Neelkanth was mysteriously submerged under a deluge of sand and rocks centuries ago, and nobody around knows what made the town suffer such a fate. The Naldehwar shrine nearby attracts hordes of pilgrims and picnickers- the former to the natural shivaling formed within an old tree trunk in the higher reaches of the forest, the latter to the little brook and seasonal waterfall at the base of 364 steps you have to climb to reach the lingam.
