Mamleshwar is considered to be an ancient temple that probably dates back to 400 AD. It is located at just a mile away from Pahalgam town. This temple is devoted to Lord Shiva and stands across the Kolahoi stream up towards the mountain. According to legend, this is the temple where Ganesha was placed as door keeper not to allow anyone to enter the temple without his permission. Mam Mal means don't go, and thus it is also known as Mammal temple. Tourists from across the world throng the temple during their holidays in Pahalgam.

While visiting Pahalgam, Mamaleshwar should not be missed at all. Located in a beautiful environment with lush green hills, Mamaleshwar is a spiritually powerful ancient shrine. I visited with my family and the scenery is just very calm, peaceful amidst the Himalayas.

Very serene, carved out of natural stones. This temple is very close to main Pahalgam market, hence easily accessible and worth visiting.
