Stambheshwar Mahadev Temple

The disappearing temple

India, a land of many ancient and mysterious temples, is home to the Stambheshwar Mahadev Temple, which disappears twice a day. 

This lesser-known temple of Lord Shiva is located in Kavi Kamboi village, Gujarat. 

Legend says that Lord Kartikeya installed this temple after defeating the demon Tarakasur, a devout follower of Lord Shiva. Despite his devotion, Tarakasur caused havoc in the three worlds, leading Lord Shiva to create Lord Kartikeya to defeat him.
