Beautiful temple with amazing architecture similar to Kedarnath temple. The temple is small serene but beautifully made all of stone with very intricate carvings all over. Sorrounding hills are very scenic and photogenic. A must visit.

An ancient temple of Lord Shiva in the beautiful valley of HImachal Pradesh. Once you reach there you feel blessed. The carving done out of stone is amazing and a masterpiece.
