Hello freinds, I am Tejas this is my first Blog about ShankarMath Temple 🙏 situated in Mount Abu, Rajasthan. We went to Mount Abu from Jaisalmer for 5 days holidays. On second day in Morning we went to visit ShankarMath Temple, I was surprised and amazed seeing such a beautiful Temple. It has 9feet tall Shiva Linga made of black stone which gives it the impression of Lord Shiva’s dreadlocks. Shankar Math is a Lord Shiva temple and intrested part is the temple is in the shape of a Shivlinga. Shankar Math was established in 1977 by Shri Mahisanand Giri ji Maharaj. The temple compound houses a lotus pond and some Rudraksha trees. The aarti is conducted here thrice a day while a special bhasm aarti. Shankar Math sees a crowd of devotees during Shivaratri and Shavan Shukla Trayo Dasi festivals.
so here are some pics taken by me sharing it with you.
