History

Hair loom of Loard Shiva is the meaning of Jatashankar. Situated on the rear stair case of mount Girnar, this place is covered in dense forest and green hills. There a water stream comes directly on the “Shivling” being continuous water bath. This is the place from where river Sonrekh originates. there is a water fall of about 20 feet on this river near this place.

Jatashankar Mahadev temple can be reached by walking towards Girnar steps. There is a left turn in a street before Girnar steps where there is another way to go upwards. To reach Jatashankar Mahadev, there are two ways: one through steps and other through the jungle. One needs to climb 500 steps and a trekking path from the jungle at the right side after climbing 500 steps. A direction board is placed after 500 steps towards Jatashankar. In monsoon season, after trekking to some distance behind the Temple, one can enjoy tiny waterfalls and have a bath in fresh water collection between big rocks. Complete silence can be enjoyed here with only sounds of birds, monkeys and others.
