The town of Avantipur is located in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. This town is a famous tourist and pilgrim destination, mainly because of two very old and ancient temples located here. Tourists normally flock to Avantipur during the peak pilgrim season.

The most famous temple among these is the Avantiswami temple, which was built during the time period of 855 to 883 AD. This temple is dedicated to the main deity Lord Vishnu, and is an enormous structure with a central shrine, surrounded by four smaller shrines.

The other ancient temple in the region is quite smaller than the former temple, and this temple is dedicated to the main deity Lord Shiva. This temple is called as the Avantishvara temple. These temples lie a kilometre apart from each other. The Avantishvara temple has a gateway made of entirely stone too. Both these temples have marvellous architecture, that kind that will surely attract tourists from far and near.

There are many other destinations in and around Avantipur that you can visit during your trip to the place. Tulian Lake is yet another famous destination among the tourists who travel to Avantipur. This lake is located at an altitude of 3353 meters and it is frozen through the winter. You can reach Avantipur conveniently by booking Srinagar packages.
