Parashurama Mahadev Temple, an ancient Shaivite temple, is located in Desuri tehsil in Pali district

. It is believed that Parashurama, the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu
, constructed the cave using his axe. He worshipped Lord Shiva
at this calm and tranquil ambience at the foothills of the Aravalli Mountain Ranges
. The cave, almost 3,995 feet above the sea level, enshrines images of Lord Shiva and Lord Ganesha worshipped and revered by pilgrims visiting the temple from various destinations. The cave, located at a distance of almost14 kms from Sadri town, has Kunds that never become dry.

Besides the fairs the trust also organises 'Sangeet Sandhya' also known as musical nights participated by local artists who sing devotional songs.
