about baijnath temple

Built in 1204 AD by the two native merchants by the name of Ahuka and Manyuka, this temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. A revered shrine of Himachal Pradesh, it is located at a distance of 16 km from Palampur in the Beas valley. The Lingam (known as Vaidyanath) here is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in India. The architecture of the temple is of the ‘Nagara’ style, which has been imbibed from Orissa's traditional style. The water of this temple is believed to contain medicinal properties, which can cure several diseases, and thus Baijnath Temple receives thousands of hopeful pilgrims every year. 

The major festival here is Shivratri, when thousands of devotees visit the temple to seek the blessings from Lord Shiva. Since the temple is considered as a part of India's rich heritage, many security arrangements are made here to avoid any unwanted elements so that your trip is made hassle free.
