How to Reach:

Markandeyshwar is located at Ck.36/10, in the bazar behind Gyan Vapi. Devotees can travel upto Gyan Vapi (Near Chowk) by rickshaw, take a right turn, climb down the steps and again take a right turn. (If a devotee proceeds diagonally left, he will enter the Gyan Vapi area). After walking a few yards, the devotee will come to Markhandeyshwar on the right side. For ready reference, Jalans (textile merchants) have a portion of their shop nearby (cut piece wing).
