Neelkanth Temples in Alwar are among the several tourist
attractions that lie within the world famous Sariska
National Park. Though the ancient temples of Neelkanth
today lie in a wrecked state, they remind of the glorious
history of the bygone era and are worth a visit during
your tour to Alwar city.
Around 32 km from the main entry point of Sariska National
Park, one comes across the ancient ruins of Neelkanth
Temples. Though no clear evidence is available regarding
the construction of Neelkanth Temples in Alwar, history
suggests that these temples were built during the period
of 6th - 13th century. The most prominent and frequently
visited temple among these is an ancient temple dedicated
to Lord Shiva (who is also known as Neelkanth in Hindu
mythology). The temple continues to attract a large
number of devotees across the country even today.
Neelkanth Temples in Alwar are flanked with lush green
trees that seem to add beauty to the otherwise ruined
site. However, the temples have now been included as
a protected area and photography/videography is strictly
restricted at the site.
