Rameshwar Mahadev Temple, Bundi

Where Nature’s beauty is in motion, we tend to forget ourselves while embracing the Nature’s liquid art. There is no better place to rediscover yourself other than, by trekking up to a waterfall and then clicking pictures, the way I did at Rameshwar Mahadev.

Let’s see how we found a Waterfall while we were searching for a stream only. When I was ZOOMING ON the roads around Bundi with Google maps for spots, came to know about this place which was around 17 km. from Bundi in Akoda village. With further search found out that there is an adjacent waterfall as well. Despite assuming that the Waterfall may be running DRY in this season, the spot seemed to be a perfect OFFBEAT Spot for this VAGABOND.

So, while exploring Bundi, I enquired about this spot with a few people. Decision to explore the spot was confirmed when only one person insisted that we must go there, rest all advised to skip due to not so good road and location on hilltop. And so, the route from Bundi to Sawai Madhopur automatically got adjusted through Rameshwar Mahadev.


Surrounded by Aravalli Mountain ranges, in the laps of nature and after climbing approx. 108 steps devotees reach to worship God Shiv or Rameshwar Mahadev, who resides peacefully in a natural cave, alongside a waterfall. While moving upstairs, the temples located at bottom and surrounding landscapes make for an exciting time.

And there is a big tunnel on the left-hand side along the way, which locales told is kilometers long. But no one dares to go inside, probably due to presence of wild animals.

Shivling here is self-manifested and there a hole in the cave from which a snake comes here sometimes to worship God Shiv. People who have witnessed the snake are considered to be as extremely fortunate.

If uphill walk was exciting, view of the downhill adjacent waterfall is electrifying. Continuously dripping water from 50 feet height on the Shivling makes for a panorama par excellence, makes the trip memorable and clicks here are worth framing. Enjoy a virtual tour of Rameshwar Mahdev. 

There are lot of monkeys around the temple premises and near to Waterfall. Take care of your belongings, especially mobile phones. This captivating spot is approx. 17 km. from Bundi. The drippling water has never dried up and even in extreme summers a small stream continuously falls on the Shivling, as if mother nature is itself worshipping God Shiv by continuous "JAL ABHISHEK". During the monsoons, tourists flock here in numbers to see the waterfall bliss. Such is the significance of this sacred spot that almost thousands of people come for praying during month of Shravan (July-August). 


Road from Bundi may not been in a perfect state but trust me you will not regret coating of dust on your vehicle after visiting here. Just the first sight of the spot was enough to feel the bliss and get rejuvenated. This the beauty and charm of offbeat spots.

To summarize - Those who want to see the way to heaven, must visit this place, Rameshwar Mahadev. Let me know if you have any comments after coming across landscape like this one - 

“There is a hidden message in every waterfall. It says, if you are flexible, falling will not hurt you.” 

Keep exploring folks...
