Mahakaleshwar – The lingam at Mahakaleshwar is believed to be swayambhu (born of itself), deriving currents of power (Shakti) from within itself as against the other images and lingams which are ritually established and invested with mantra-shakti. The idol of Mahakaleshwar is known to be dakshinamurti, facing the South. This is a unique feature, upheld by tantric tradition to be found only in Mahakaleshwar.

Harsiddhi Temple : This temple is just 400 mtr away from the Mahakeleshwar Jyotirlinga Temple. According to Hindu mythology, this is one of the Shakti Peethas. It is also believed that Sati’s elbow fell here when the Sudarshana Chakra cut her body, according to the Daksha Yagna episode of the Hindu Tradition.

Ram Janardhan Mandir : This temple was constructed in 17th century by Raja Jai Singh. The specialities of Ram Janardhan Mandir include the 11th century sculpture of Govardhandhari Krishna and the 10th century sculpture of Vishnu as well as the 12th century idol of Trimurti.

Kala Bhairava Temple : Beliefs says, King Bhadra constructed Kala Bhairava Temple over the ruins of an old demolished temple. This temple was of great significance during the Paramar period.

Baneshwar Temple – situated in the middle of the ghat is approachable via a boat.
