Mamleshwar Temple Pahalgam

Mamleshwar Temple dates back to 400 A.D and is mainly devoted to Lord Shiva. The temple is elevated at the height of 8800 ft above sea level, on the banks of Kolahoi stream, the source of the Lidder River. Legends say that this sacred site was where Lord Ganesha was kept as a door guard to prevent anyone from getting inside. Thus, Mamleshwar is also called the Mammal Temple (Mam Mal-Don't go). The presiding deity inside the temple is a Shiva linga with a water spring. The sacred complex also has a shrine entirely adorned with gold and was put up during the rule of a former king. So pay a visit to this holy shrine and rebuild your faith in the almighty.
