Situated approximately 7 km from the Railway station on the route to Ranthambore National Park, the Amareshwar Mahadeo Temple stands as an ancient haven of spirituality. This oldest Shiva temple, also known as Amareshwar Mahadeo, is nestled amidst towering hills, exuding an aura of sacredness.
Dating back around 1200 years, Amareshwar Mahadeo Temple shares its antiquity with the historic Ranthambhore Fort, discovered over 300-400 years ago. Initially
concealed by dense forests, reaching the temple in earlier times posed a formidable challenge. Today, a one-kilometer journey through the forest area along the
Ranthambhore road, either by foot or vehicle, unveils this timeless sanctuary.
Religious and Historical Significance: Amareshwar Mahadeo Temple has evolved into one of the prominent religious attractions near Sawai Madhopur, surrounded by lush green hills. On the auspicious day of Shivaratri, the temple transforms into a vibrant fair (Mela) during daylight hours, followed by a night-long Jagaran. Devotees flock to the temple to offer their reverence to the deity, creating an atmosphere steeped in spirituality.
Natural Beauty and Picnic Spot: Beyond its religious and historical eminence, the temple has become a favored picnic spot for the locals, especially during the rainy season. The enchanting waterfall, meandering nullah, and picturesque groves add to the allure of the surroundings. Men and women have separate bathing areas, enhancing the temple's accessibility and appeal.
Tourist Attraction: Amareshwar Mahadeo Temple attracts tourists not only for its religious significance but also for the captivating natural beauty that envelopes it.
