Devguradia Shiva Mandir is located in a small village called Devguradia, which is at a distance of 8 km from Indore city. It is an ancient temple built in reverence of Lord Shiva. The temple is a monument built from rocks. The temple was constructed in the 7th century AD. It was later renovated under Rani Ahilya Bai Holkar in the 18th century AD. This temple is famous as the Garuda Tirth among the locals.

The specialty of this ancient temple is that the water opening is designed to represent the shape of a cow’s mouth or ‘Gomukh’. The original Devguradia Shiva Temple and the Shiva Lingam had sunk in the ground at an earlier time in history and then the present day temple was built on it. Every year a grand fair is organized at the temple premises to mark the occasion of Maha Shivratri, a festival dedicated to Lord Shiva.
