Shiv Temple


Shiv temple at Baijnath is 16 km from Palampur, on the Pathankot-Mandi national highway. In the 9th century AD in the shikhara style, it is built of stone and a fine blend of sculpture and architecture. The temple can be easily reached both from Palampur and Kangra. The linga enshrined in its sanctum is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in the country. Every year during the Shivratri fair, pilgrims came to Baijnath for the colourful fair and festivities.
