Tulsishyam Temple History
The Tulsishyam Temple is located in the centre of Gir, 30 km from Una District.
The Tulsishyam temple in the village of the same name is dedicated to Lord Vishnu or Lord Krishna. Located in the idyllic surroundings of the Sasan Gir reserve forest, Tulsishyam is about 30 km from Una. It is believed Lord Krishna killed a demon called Tul at this place.
The temple is about seven hundred years old, but the enshrined Murti is said to be nearly 3,000 years old. The temple is on the top of a small hill, with 100 steps leading up to it.
Tulsishyam Temple Hot Water Springs
One interesting feature here is the hot springs. These are in three sections, with hot water at increasing temperatures. The third kund is at its boiling point. The Kunds are known as ‘Taptodak’. The waters are said to have curative properties. Adjacent to this hot water spring is the ancient Tulsi-Rukmini Temple.
Devotees can visit Rukmani Devi Temple, located on a small hill with around 100 steps to climb opposite Tulsi Shyam Temple and Mahaprabhuji Bethak near the temple. Dharmashala and Bhojanalaya are available at Tulsi Shyam to facilitate devotees. Many times, lions and other wild animals are moving around this temple and on the road, so it is not advisable to drive during the night.
The Tulsishyam fair is planned here on the 11th day of Shukla Paksha of Bhadra month, Jal Zilni Ekadashi. Thousands of devotees from nearby villages visit here with enormous faith and devotion. Precautions It is recommended that you be in your room from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, as there is a fear of wild animals. There is a Wildlife Sanctuary Sightseeing Point about 3 km from the temple where you can spot wildlife.
