Shiva temple??

Had been to the Shiva temple behind Total on old airport road. The temple also has a website, and you can see a few pictures at these blogs: [1] [2]. This was also known as the Shiva temple at Kemp fort. It features several unique offerings: One can see the 12 Jyotirlingas for Rs 10 (The lady stressed in no mean terms that one has to buy a ticket, and that this was a steal), a live bhajan troupe, a miracle spot *1, a special havan seva *2. The nava grahas are placed in a globe like structure.

Readers can draw their own conclusions about how the temple is. I will probably take my parents there once; they have to see this.

*1 You can get wishes granted if you pay about Re 10 or so, say Om Namah Shivaya 7 times and drop a coin into a pond.

*2 For a small donation the pujari will give you some wood, oil, and pre-prepared bowl of navadhanyas to put in a pre-burning flame.

A different blog seems to indicate that the temple was not always like this.
