Neelkanth mahadev is located around 20kms from the main city of rishikesh... One can get to this temple by taking a sharing car or private taxis easily available in the rishikesh... A must visit place...

The temple and view to reach the same are beautiful. However the roads leading to the temple are in really bad shape and can cause people some sickness. Share taxis are available from Ram-Jhula to reach the temple which is around 15km from there.

Getting to Neelkanth Temple is a very adventures experience. The road is narrow and not well maintained. It is a long drive to get there from Rishikesh. Once you are there, one can hardly see the temple, since there are many huts and homes built around it. Anyhow it is very unusual, colourful, and worth a visit. Be aware of... More

Its an old and simple temple of lord Shiva around 25 kilometers from Rishikesh, an hour's drive. It is nice and quite place. We were allowed to do puja and was not too rushy.

At around 30 kms on top of the mountain from the Rishikesh centre, it is one of the most inspiring drive to the temple. The temple in itself is an old but clean temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Stretches of the road are not in good condition with signs of rock falls, and the entire road is winding from one... More
