Grishneshwar Temple

One of the great places to visit around Ellora and Ajanta is the Grishneshwar temple.

Dedicated to Lord Shiva, you can make an offering of flowers, incense, and coconut to the god- and have coconut prasad after!

These are photos of 1996 Ajanta Site Seminar folks participating in the offerings to Lord Shiva in the inner shrine. A group of women (including me) were next, but unfortunately, I have no photos!
