The famous pilgrimage of Eklingji is situated in the Udaipur district of Rajasthan. It is also known as Kailashpuri and is the foremost of the 4 pilgrimage sites of Mewad.

Eklingji is worshipped as the Parbrahma form of Shiv. He is considered as the true ruler of Mewad while the Sisodia Ranas of Mewad rule as his Diwans (ministers).

Eklingji Temple is situated in a huge complex escorted by high walls. It has 108 temples including those of Shiv, Parvati, Ganesh, Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati etc.

This place is situated 20 km to the north of Udaipur and 28 km to the south of renowned Vaishnav pilgrimage, Nathdwara. The initial construction was carried out by the founder of Mewad kingdom, Bappa Rawal.

The temple houses a 4-faced Shivling of which the east symbolises Surya (Sun), the west-Brahma, the north-Vishnu, and the south-Rudra. The influence on the architecture is clearly that of the Solanki style of Gujarat.
