About Shiv MandirOne of the most significant religious places to see in Dehradun is the Shiv Mandir on Mussoorie Road. Also known as Shri Prakasheshwar Mahadev Mandir, the temple is dedicated to Hindu deity, Lord Shiva, and is situated amidst the lush green valleys of Dehradun. The temple is not only visited by devotees from nearby cities but also from all over the country. The primary attraction of the temple is the sphatik Shivlinga.
During special occasions such as Shivratri and Saawan (monsoons), the temple is literally flooded by worshippers from everywhere. During a visit to the temple, visitors must cherish the free Bhandara that is held every day where devotees are distributed prasad. There is also a small gem and jewellery shop within the temple premises for buying precious birthstones and other jewellery or souvenirs. An intriguing fact about the temple is that it is the only private temple of its kind which has an anonymous owner.
