Situated close to Gorkha or Gukhar Mountains in district Mahoba in Uttar Pradesh, Shiv Tandav temple, as the name suggests, is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. It hosts a large idol of God Shiva dancing in his fierce Tandav form. The idol is built from a single black granite stone. It is flanked by a fountain which emits milky-white water brought down from the Gorakh Hills.
The idol of Shiva in Tandav dance form is one of the rarest in the region. There is also a well of Shiv Tandav close to the temple.
