One of the most popular shrines, Mukteshwar temple, is an ancient temple which is almost 350 years old and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Perched on top of the highest point in Mukteshwar (which is a beautiful hill station that got its name after the shrine), the temple lies approximately 2312 m above the sea level. This grand temple is identified as one of the eighteen most important temples dedicated to Lord Shiva in the Hindu scripture.
The location of Mukteshwar Temple atop a hill makes it a perfect place for clicking some wonderful pictures and capturing memories. The nature lovers must surely visit the temple and enjoy the breathtaking view one is likely to get from there. A white marble Shiva Linga is also present here which has a copper yoni. In addition to the Shiva Linga, there are idols of other deities as well including Lord Ganesha, Brahma, Vishnu, Parvati, Hanuman, and Nandi. The Mukteshwar temple is considered vital and holds a lot of significance for the committee of iron ore miners known as 'agaries'.
This magnificent temple is believed to be home to Shri Mukteshwar Maharaj Ji which is also a suitable place to practice meditation. One can even trek to the hilltop where the temple is located. Also, since the trek is not very challenging and the way up to the hill is covered with fruits orchards and forests in use, it takes about 2 hours to reach there.
