SPECIALITY:

There is a crevice at the top of Siva Linga. This is always with full of water and even on removal it maintains the same level. There is no logical explanation for this phenomenon as the temple is located at a height of about 120 metres from the river water level. Priests show this phenomenon also explains sthala purana as under STHALA PURANA: For thousands of years the Temple remained in dense forest. Once a hunter was chaging a bird and the bird hid behind the Siva Linga to save its life. Lord Siva appeared before the hunter and asked him not to kill the bird and offered him to take his brain and the hunter inserted his fingures on the head of the Linga for the purpose and in the process the crevice was caused. The Temple opens at 6:30 am and closes by 7.30 pm. In between also closed for a few hours from noon.
