The beauty of this template is in the fact that how old it is. Everything at this temple is more than hundreds of year old and its beautiful in every aspect. Do visit if you want to pry for a while or just see the temple and the architecture.

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.
