Koneshwar Temple Lucknow

Dedicated to Lord Shiva, Koneshwar Temple is reckoned amongst the oldest temples in Lucknow. It is said that this popular temple in Lucknow was once located on the banks of Gomti River and dates back to Treta Yuga. During that time, the river used to flow near the temple. However, later it changed its way. There is an interesting story that revolves around the name of this religious site in Lucknow. It says that while constructing the temple, the idol of Lord Shiva was meant to be installed at a location that can be easily approachable for both locals and priests. But, every time when the idol was installed in an approachable location, it used to come back to its original site. After three to four attempts, it was finally decided, the temple will be built at its original location, and thus, derives the name Koneshwar. Throughout the year, this famous tourist site in Lucknow remains dotted with oodles of tourists. However, the crowds get doubled up during the month of Sawan (monsoon) and also on the auspicious day of Mahashivratri.
