Just 32 kms from Rishikesh via Barrage and 22 kms via Ram Jhoola, this place abounds in religious fervour, mythological significance and picturesque surroundings. According to a legend, this place derivedits name from Lord Shiva. It is believed that it was here that Lord Shiva consumed the venom, which emanated during the ‘Samudra Manthan’. Due to this, His throat became blue in colour, thus giving Shiva the name of Neelkanth. Centuries old temples here reserve in their fold the celestial aura and legendary ambience. At 926 meters, amidst three valleys (Vishnukoot, Brahmakoot and Manikoot) and on the confluence of Madhumati and Pankaja rivers awaits Neelkanth Mahadev. Neelkanth Mahadev is 22 kms from Swargashram.
