Built in 1204 AD this temple is made all of stone with very intricate carvings all over. Situated with the Dhauladhar range behind it, it is an absolutely gorgeous spot on a sunny day and, in my experience, much less crowded than the nearby, much more modern Chamunda Devi temple. If you're near the area and a history/religion buff it... More

we very much enjoyed our walk around the Shiva temple in Baijnath. I'm sure it was helped by having a lovely sunny morning, so the mountains behind the temple made for some spectacular views as well. The rituals surrounding whispering in the bull's ear were fun and everyone we met was very welcoming.

Built in the 13th century the temple is a beautiful example of the engineering prowess of the people of that time. It's a big compound housing the main deity of shiva along with smaller enclosures for other deities. It's a Nice visit.
