Legend / Local stories
How to Reach:
Madalaseshwar is located at D.5/133 Kalika Galli. When a devotee proceeds from Annapurna on the road to Vishwanath temple and crosses Vishwanath temple, after about 50 yards he will reach a cross road known as Saraswati Phatak. After taking a right turn and walking for a short distance, he will encounter a right turn which is Kalika Galli. Without turning right, just on the opposite side (viz. on the left side) the devotee will see Madalaseshwar. However, the locals refer to this Ling by the name of Pancham Mandareshwar.
