Another legendary spot that bears close association with the Panadava Brotheres, Sthaneshwar Mahadev Temple hold much significance. Legend has it that Lord Shiva blessed the Pandavas while they were at Sthaneshwer. The popular belief is that the tank adjoins the temple has some curative properties. It is also believed that the sacred waters of the tank cured Banasura’s long-term leprosy. Hence a visit to Lord Shiva’s temple here at Sthaneshwar tops pilgrim’s itinerary.

Sthaneshwer was the glorious capital of Harsha Vardhana, and hence the structural design of the temple presents some regional influence. Its domical roof is in the shape of amla with a lofty pinnacle. This venerated shrine holds an ancient Shiva Linga, which holds the credentials of the first idol of Lord Shiva in the phallic form.
