Amareshwar Mahadeo Temple – 1200 Years Old Temple

Sawai Madhopur tour winter season I visited one of the oldest Shiva temples popularly known as Amareshwar Mahadeo. While talking the priest Shri Chiman Lal enhanced knowledge about The History of The Amareshwar Mahadeo temple. Chiman Ji is the eighth-generation priest for the temple.

It is said Amareshwar Mahadeo is 1200 years old temple as old as Ranthambhore Fort discovered past 300-400 years. To reach the temple in the early years was almost impossible because of the dense jungle all around. Till today one has to walk/drive for one km inside the jungle area via Ranthambhore Road. Later man-made path was made. During the rainy season, a waterfall is an added attraction.

Shivarati is the day for Mela (fair) during day hours and Jagaran the whole night.

The bus for Dungri Village and sharing Jeep service for Ranthambhore fort is available at Sawai Madhopur railway station or Ranthambhore Road to drop you close to Amareshwar Mahadeo temple and one km walk to reach the temple. Bus/Jeep fare Rs. 5 – 10 per person. Hiring your own taxi for a day is the best option to visit Dastkar, Ranthambhore Fort, Amareshwar Mahadeo, and the town as well.
