Also known as Kashishwar Mahadev Temple, this grand Shiv Temple was built by Shri Kashi Persad, Talluqedar, Sassendi in 1860. Later on, it was given a new look by Rani Subhadra Kunvar in 1926 as is evident from the stone fixed on the gate of the temple. Situated at around 19 kms. away from Lucknow, Mohanlalganj is a block of Lucknow. Mohanlalganj is named on the name of Raja Mohan Lal, who was son-in-law of Raja Jeevan Lal. This temple has historical value and is the witness of Hindu traditional Vastu [construction] art. You can view below a 'How to reach Mohanlalganj' map to know the location of temple.
This most beautiful looking temple has eight number of Shivalas (Small temples around the Main). The main temple is in Centre. Top of the temple is decorated with eleven rudras. You can see attractive art work on the inner as well as outer walls of the temple. There is also big brass 'Ghanta' on the entrance of the temple.

This more than a century old temple, is one of the precious heritage buildings of the Lucknow. During Shiv Ratri festival, devotees from far off places throng to this temple to offer prayers.
