Shiva Temple
 

Shiva TempleLocated on Airport road, behind the famous Kemp Fort is the Shiva temple with a massive concrete idol of Lord Shiva. The 65 feet tall statue, built in 1995, portrayed Shiva in the position of Padmasan (lotus position). It has the backdrop of Mount Kailash the Lord's heavenly abode and the river Ganga flowing from his matted locks as depicted in mythology. The statue looks majestic during the night with its lighting. On occasions such as Mahashivratri, Holi, etc. special pooja's are offered and during Shivaratri, a grand festival is held here. It is believed that dropping a coin in the pond in front of the idol by chanting 'Om Nama Shivaya' 7 times with a lighted candle fulfills one's wishes. A holy cave is located behind the idol and the cave yatra traditionally called Amarnath yatra, open to the public from 9 am to 9 pm attracts huge crowds.
