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.

It is good to visit. The temple is on the way to Kausani from Munsiary. The temple is a cluster of ancient temples made of mainly stones. One can say it to be a mini Jageshwar Temple.

An ancient rock cut temple. Right on the main road and just opposite the Baijnath Bus Stand. Very convenient and clean temple. The river beneath adds to mystic.

About 20kms away from palampur city there is this small but 8th century temple in quite good condition. Must visit if you are around there. Since palampur city in itself has nothing to see other than tea garden and pottery centre.
