"Holy temple of Lord Shiva right in the centre of Gulmarg valley atop a small hillock . The main shivling is very beautiful. Temple roof is made of walnut wood with nice carving work. Temple can be seen from any part of Gulmarg. It derives its name from Maharani of Jammu and Kashmir who got this temple built."
