Himachal Yatra – बैजनाथ


The village named after the temple – Baijnath is a small, sleepy town with shops on the sides of the main Pathankot-Mandi high way. We asked a person about the temple and were guided towards it. Turning left we entered a huge parking area, parked our car and looked towards the temple complex…. It was magnificent, artistic, ancient and beautiful. The temple has been taken over by ASI and result was clearly visible.

The temple complex, unlike most of our other temples was very clean with no Parshad shops nearby, and without any chaos of visitors. It has beautifully cut hedges, gardens and pathways all around.

Baijnath temple was re-built on the ruins of ancient Shiva temple by two Himachali businessmen in 1200 AD.
