Religion predominates in the region of Khajjiar. In fact, the place derived its name from the famous Khajjinag Temple here. So, if you have a religious inclination to your character, Khajjiar shall be a fulfilling experience. We give you a few sites you can visit to pay homage to and explore.

  • Khajjinag Temple

    This is considered as one of the oldest and holiest religious shrines in the entire state of Himachal Pradesh. This temple truly is the religious epicentre of this town. Dedicated to Khajji Nag (the serpent god), the temple is believed to have been built in the 12th century.
    This beautiful structure, carved out of wood, exudes an ancient feel, with its golden dome and spire being its highlight.
    The temple also has a fascinating
    mandapa where images of the five Pandavas and the defeated Kauravas hang from the roof.
  • Hidimba Temple

    This revered small temple stands close to Khajjinag Temple. It is dedicated to Hidimba, wife of the Pandava, Bhima and a demon herself. Local legends have it that the Pandavas, along with Hidimba visited this site.
    Those who come to Khajjinag, seldom fail to pay a visit to this sacred temple.

Even though, there are limited places of worship here, the ones that do exist occupy a cult status among the religious followers here. Moreover, you could visit the nearby churches in Dalhousie (which happens to be only 7 km away) which reflect exquisite Victorian architecture. Some suggestions are: St. John’s Church and St. Francis Church.
Immerse yourself in the spirit of religion and treat yourself with the charming beauty that Khajjiar is.
