An ancient Shiva temple with a ghat having tranquil waters & nestled in the hills. It is not so crowded and therefore, very peaceful. It might not be a must-see but if you are in Kausani, please visit this temple which is around 17 kms away.

There are just two mahakal temples in India. One in Ujjain and other is this in Baijnath. Almost 30kms from Palampur, temple is well maintained. Roads to this place are good and don't need specific skill to drive to this place.

River is flowing just below the temple,... More

In Baijnath, you will find an ancient North Indian temple that resembles dravidian architecture, giving credence to the myth of Ravana having done penance their. It is amazing indeed when you realize that this place is thousands of miles away from Tamil Nadu and yet the sculptures and artwork seem so similar. Anyways, the temple is set in the lap... More

The beautiful temple complex @ Baijnath on the way to Chaukori is a good break in the midst of a long drive. The serene Gomati River passes and its a good place to sit and enjoy the tranquility and the heavenly feel.

Baijnath temple can be reached by private as well as public means of transport. Roads are well maintained although a bit sleep and narrow due to the location of the temple. You can enjoy the beautiful views of the dhauladhar ranges covered with snow from the temple and along the way. If you're a group of young people, I would... More

A very ancient Shiva temple. But it is not one of the 12 jyotirlings as some may think. Just behind the temple flows river Binwa which is the tributary of river Beas.
