Ambernath Shiv Mandir, Thane, Maharashtra, India

Ambernath Shiv Mandir, Barku pada, Ambernath (E), Thane Dist., Maharashtra

The Shiv Mandir of Ambernath also called as the Ambreshwar Shiva Temple is located on the bank of Vadavan (Waldhuni) river. The temple is a towering structure surrounded by a fenced wall. It is richly carved and decorated out of a single black stone, while the intricate carvings are inspired from Hemadpanti style of architecture. It is situated 2 km away from Ambernath railway station. According to legend, Pandavas built this temple during their time of exhile. The temple was later constructed in 1060 AD by Shilahara king Chhittaraja Dev and his son Mummuni rebuilt it. This temple has 20 steps to go down in the main room called garbha griha and there is one shivling at the center of the room. In the past the garbha griha used to get flooded every monsoon. On the occasion of Mahashivaratri, the area is extremely crowded with devotees. There is also a big fair in Ambernath on that day to get blessings from Lord Shiva. The Mahashivaratri Fair continues for 3–4 days. It starts two days prior to Mahashivaratri and continues for a day after Mahashivaratri. Devotees from Mumbai suburbs and Thane frequently visit this ancient temple.
