These are temples more than a thousand years old and one temple is, in fact, leaning to one side! We reached there around 2 pm and we could spend some time in the... More

This temple has been considered as a part of the 12 Jyothirlingas. An Archaeologically important temple in which the carvings are pretty much intact. It is a must visit place for Lord Shiv's Followers. In the winters they even make a big Shiv Ling out of butter which stays put for a few days. The way to the temple is... More

An Archaeologically important site, its well preserved. its one of 12 Jyotirlinga and that's why its shocking that there is no one around. Only one small flower shop. 2 priests. No one to ask for any money. No one except some local students. Is this really one of 12 Jyotirlinga??

The present name Baijnath became popular after the name of the temple. The town is located on the left bank of the river Binwa, a corrupt form of ancient Binduka, a tributary... More

We visited the temple during our stay in Palampur. A auto will take you there from Palampur in about 30 mins. Built completely of stone, more than 1000 years ago, this temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It holds one of the twelve jyotirlings found across India. The temple is small but beautiful and the carvings completely 'starable' and clickable.... More

Baijnath. A quiet town on the Pathankot Manali Highway, known for the oldest temple of Lord Shiva. The story behind the temple is what attracted me to it, but it was well worth the visit. There was no great rush, and we could pay our obeisance in peace. The temple heavily patronized during Shivratri. Sure that parking would also be... More
