BAJOTHIA MAHADEV

BAJOTHIA MAHADEV

This Mahadev temple, located 17 kms from Palanpur via Malan, is very old.

It is said that when people were digging here, they unearthed a Shivling and the ruins of an ancient courtyard that resembled a 'bajot' hence the name Bajothia Mahadev.



Situated amidst trees and streams, one has to climb down 40 stone steps to reach this small, but ancient temple. It is considered holy by the adivasis and the villagers residing around it.

Monday is Shivji's day and on this day hundreds of devotees flock to worship Shiva and offer the Billipatra. The temple site is well connected to Palanpur by buses and rickshaws.
