Triloknath Temple


Triloknath Temple is situated 4km from Udaipur Village, on the bank of the Chenab River in Himachal Pradesh. The temple has a 12th century, six-armed, white marble idol of Lord Shiva. This astonishing temple is a handsome commingling of Buddhist monasteries and Hindu temples.

Triloknath Temple is famous for its debilitated carvings, gracing the inner walls and doors. The tower of Triloknath temple is made from stone. In temple's courtyard there is a tiny stone Nandi (the divine bull) and a granite shivling (phallus, indicative representation of Lord Shiva). There are two brilliantly carved stone pillars on each side of the door, known as the pillars of `dharma` and `paap` (virtue and sin).
