The centuries old stone temple is beautiful! Must visit if you are in Dharamshala , Kangra, Tarapur , McLeod Ganj area. It does not have mad rush which is awesome!

This is a small temple but it is worth the time and effort to visit because of its architecture, age and sparse number of visitors. The carvings inside and outside were beautifully done. Despite its age, the carvings were preserved.

We headed for the great Shiv Temple where the great disciple of Lord Shiv King Ravan did his penance. This is called Baijnath Temple. An ancient temple – anything from 1000 to 1500 years old, the antiquity of the venue is much more, I guess. These numbers in years stop meaning much after some time… The Lord’s name is Vaidhanatha,... More

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.
