Markandeshwar Temple, Kurukshetra


Markandeshwar Mahadev temple is situated in Shahbad Markanda, about 25 kms from Kurukshetra.

The old temple dates back to the pre-Mahabarat times. The new temple that stands now belongs to the 20th century. Pilgrims flock this temple on Sundays and during the month of July – August.

The temple is situated on the Ambala-Delhi section of the Grand Trunk road, about 20 km from Ambala. The walls of the temple have Lord Shiva protecting Markandeya from Yama painted on them.
