From Bijolia the road goes past Menal, which has another beautiful group of 12th century temples and ruins. This place gets its name from Mahanal (the great gorge) was a habitation of considerable importance, as is evident from the ruins. It was retreat of the great Prithviraj II. The stones of the temples are extensively carved and decorated, showing Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati in different poses with beautiful frieze of animals, musicians and dancers. There is a breathtaking view of the gorge from the courtyard of the temple.
