Among the many places of worship on the hill of Kalingar, the Nilakanta Mahadev merits first mention. In one of the caves of this big hill there lies the Nilakantha Mahadev temple. It contains a black image of Mahadev of about four feet in height and hence the name of Nilakanta Mahadev temple. Inscriptions furnish certain details of the kings who built and made endowments to this holy shrine.

It was built by Parmal Brahma, the last of Chandella rulers who ruled this region in twelfth century.  Ardent devotees who worshipped were blessed by the lord and they made endowments lavishly. Inscriptions bear many details of such patrons and bhaktas. Vamanapurana embodies an exhaustive account of this Saivakshetra.

It is in Kalinjar town in Banda district of Madhya Pradesh. It was under the administration of Chandella kings and this temple lies in the celebrated fort of Bundelkhand.
