8th century temple
Feb 2021 • Friends
8th century Nagara style temple built by two local merchants named Ahuka and Manyuka..
A very holy and sacred shrine of Lord Shiva. Overall well managed. Behind the temple is a rivulet and you can go down the stairs, right to the rivulet.
This place also has some really great vibes. Something so surreal about this place with the Himalayas in the background it just adds to the beauty.

The intricate carvings on the walls and the pillars of the temple of the gods and goddesses from the Indian mythology is something you can keep watching and you won't get bored of.
Kheer Ganga on the back side of the temple is just so marvelous with the Ganga flowing from the Himalayas
There is also a small market place in the approach road to the temple. A holy and ancient shrine , all devotees must visit.

Admirable architecture
Feb 2020 • Family
Shiv temple baijnath is build in Nagra style of architecture by Ahunk& Maynk in 12A.D devoted to lord Shiva, interesting thing to notice about the town Baijnath is there is no shop of Gold & blacksmith plus no celebration on the occasion of dhushera due to Ravan who was a true devotee of lord shiva & so the rescpect is offered ironically.

Iconic Temple in India with great mythology behind it
Aug 2019 • Friends
I have been visiting this temple since the year 2017 when i came as a tourist up until now that i am a resident in Bir. This place is magical. Everytime i go there i spot something new or see something new which I hadn't noticed in my previous visits.

This place also has some really great vibes. Something so surreal about this place with the Himalayas in the background it just adds to the beauty.

Also this place carries a great mythical story behind it as per indian mythology and how the temple came into existence 800 years back. You can google it for your understanding.

The intricate carvings on the walls and the pillars of the temple of the gods and goddesses from the Indian mythology is something you can keep watching and you won't get bored of.

Kheer Ganga on the back side of the temple is just so marvelous with the Ganga flowing from the Himalayas amd you see all of it with huge stones and rocks in the river, sometimes the clouds covering the Himalayas, the sound of the river gushing that you can hear on top when it's quite. Afternoon is a good time to visit.

The close the gate to the Kheer Ganga at 6pm usually but the temple is open till 9pm .

I also always recommend my guest to visit this place or i take them too many a times if I'm free.

It is only 45 mins by bus from Bir Road by bus and 20-25 mins from Bir if you hire a taxi.

Well preserved ancient temple
Dec 2019 • Family
Baijnath is a small township located on a hilly trail around 18 km from Palampur in H.P.. The ride to baijnath is very scenic and roads are well laid.
Baijnath is famous for the ancient Shiva temple. The temple is well preserved even though it is very ancient. It's a very small temple and the surroundings are maintained clean. The views of the dhauladhar ranges from the temple is awesome and entails a must visit.
Parking is available at 100 mtrs from temple premises.

Badly managed
Apr 2019
The temple has a great history to it, but sadly it is managed so so badly that one won't feel the vibes of a temple. All around the premises you'll see beggars and place is not kept clean. Sad :(
