Situated 22 km away from Udaipur, the Ekling Temple is one of the most famous pilgrimage sites in the state of Rajasthan.
Ekling is believed to be the ruling deity of the princely state of Mewar.
Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple was built in 734 AD and has been repaired and modified numerous times.
A four-faced idol of Lord Shiva made out of black marble rests in the temple.
The idol is 50 foot tall and is flanked by idols of Goddess Parvati and her two sons, Lord Ganesha and Lord Kartikeya.
The main temple has huge silver doors depicting the two sons guarding their father.
One must visit the temple during the festival of Shivratri as a great celebration ensues during this time.
