    13th century Shiv temple
    This place is worth visiting when coming to palampur. It is a really old shiv temple located on a hill top. The temple is peaceful and has great views of snow clad peaks. They have a designated parking area but it is a bit small.. that's the only reason for the 4 stars.

    Wonderful experience. Such a beautiful 5000 years old ancient Shiva temple . But disappointed that there was no arrangement of shoe racks. The carvings done were beautiful. A little crowded on Mondays. Avoid going in the afternoon as sun shines directly above it n can be very hot.

The Sacred site is very well maintained and darshan timmings need to be followed. We reached the temple complex at 7.40pm and the temple doors were closed for the day. We offered our prayers to Lord Baijnath Shivling form outside.

Planning to visit this holy place again

Local/Volvo buses operate from ISBT Kashmere Gate till 7.30 - 8pm. Travel time is about 10-11 hrs.

A place of improtance in Hindu religion.

Wish you all a divine darshan

A must visit 13th Century Ancient Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. My kids were amazed on learning the fact that this construction was carried out so far back in time & still stands strong. These temples in such far flung areas reinstate our pride in our rich culture & history.

Heritage Temple with heart touching vibes. Situated in Dhauladhar range in background.
Very polite priests. Beautiful shivling of Shiv and Shakti.

Baijnath (Vaidyanath) temple at Bainath near Palampur (HP) has the rare sight of a standing Nandi in addition to the usual sitting Nandi. People could be seen whispering their wishes in the ears of the standing Nandi.

The temple is said to have been got constructed in1204 by two merchants.

Legend has it that when, pleased by Ravan's tapasya, Mahadev granted him his wish of taking him to Lanka but in the form of a Shivling and with the rider that Ravan had to carry it without putting it down on the way, Brahma and Vishnu, worried that all the powers of Mahadev will go to Lanka, tricked Ravan into putting it down at this spot. The Shivling could not be moved from there and got installed as a Jyotirling.

As such, Ravan too is revered there and neither is Ravan effigy burnt nor Vijaydashami celebrated in Baijnath.
