It is one of the major tourist attractions of Mandsaur and is visited by a number of visitors from the local area. Dharmrajeshwar is a famous for its Cave Temple, which is a monolithic temple, located in Garoth town of Mandsaur district, Madhya Pradesh. It is a Buddhist and Hindu Cave Temple. The Temple signifies brilliant example of Indian rock-cut architecture and is believed that it was carved by using solid natural rocks in the 9th century and the architecture is similar to Kailasa Temple, Ellora Caves. The main Temple houses a Shivaling and a murti of Bhagwan Vishnu, surrounded by 7 smaller shrines.
This was the first Outdoor Project for the students of the first semester. Being students of tourism & hospitality, it is important for them to visit and know about the tourist spots.
