The Daksheswar Mahadev Temple is a Shiva temple named for King Daksha Prajapati, who was the father of Sati, while Sati was the first consort of Shiva. Daksheswar Mahadev Temple is one of the many temples in Haridwar and purely from an aesthetic point of view, it’s not all that interesting.

Daksh Mahadev mandir is mythological place where Parvati Mata became Sati and left her life in Sati Kund. One visiting at Haridwar should visit this temple.

Mythological place

This is Sati Mata 's birthplace as well as the place where Sati left her life in Sati kund when her father Daksha insulted her husband Lord Shiva. This place is in Kankhal and Ganga is flowing near sati kinda adjacent to the temple campus. Ganga is not very clean here. But people takes bath due to the mythological importance of this place. Opposite to this temple campus Maa Aanandamoyi's Ashram is there. I have visited that place too for half an hour.

Too much commercial activity around the temple
Oct 2019
When I first visited this temple many years ago, it was somehow much better. Now, like nearly all the big temples, there's more concrete and more commercial activity around it, and that kind of spoils the atmosphere. Most people just come in for their few seconds of darshan and go out without really noticing much of anything. I didn't get the feeling i had earlier.

Historical temple but now ruined by concrete all around
Apr 2019
I had fond memories of visiting this temple 30 years ago. The very ancient temple complex had huge banyan trees around it and the beautiful Ganga flowing next to it. The place looked very mystic especially if you knew the history of this temple. Now visiting after 30 years i was shocked to see the whole complex concreted with so many shops blaring and selling devotional music, pictures of gods and goddesses, sweets, etc. Also the railings put up to control crowd......the whole beauty and charm of the ancient temple is gone......
