Like all other ancient temples this too is built of stone. Though the temple does not reflect any pomp or show or sculptures yet it describes the golden reign of Hindu rulers in the 8th century BC. While the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha
was placed at the doorsteps as a doorkeeper who shall protect the deity and restrict its devotees from entering the premises of the temple. This gave the name of the temple which was originally named as Mamalishwara which means 'Mam Mal' or 'don't go'. The temple is looked after by a priest who organizes the daily rituals for the deity. This is often visited by the tourists who visit Pahalagam during the summer season.
Thus along with other ancient temples in Kashmir valley, the Mamleshwara Temple is another important place of worship that attracts a number of devotees every year.
