The temple was built in 1780 and is one of the most spacious temple complexes in the city. In 1900, a tall spire was added to the original construction. The temple is always abuzz with festivities, especially on Mondays, which is the main day of worship. A stone `lingam` of Shiva is worshipped in Babulnath temple.
