About Shiva Mandir

Shiva Mandir in Jalandhar dates back to Lodhi Era. Nawab of Sultanpur was believed to have built this Mandir for Lord Shiva. As per historical facts, The Nawab had married a young Hindu Girl whom he considered as object of his lust. However, being a devotee of Lord Shiva, the honor of the Girl was protected by a snake. On seeing this, Nawab apologized to her and in turn she asked him to build a Mandir for Lord Shiva. You can see the architecture of this temple is somewhat awkward. The main gate is of Islamic architecture whereas the rest of the temple is of Hindu Architecture. The Mandir is amidst of busy Gur Mandir Market area.
