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??

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
