A legendary temple that boasts of a rich tradition, Baijnath temple is the most magnificent monument in Kangra Valley. Directed westwards, the temple encompasses astonishing structural designs that resemble the Jagannatha Temple at Puri. The temple architecture shows an adytum or puri of 8 to 18 feet width where the Lingam is depicted.

Mandapa and its pyramidal roof of the temple is the other alluring attractions.

Lord Shiva is seen in the Vaidhyanatha form or the Lord of physicians and it is from this temple the town got its name Baijnath. The temple holds the legendary belief that it was here that Ravana attained immortality by worshipping Lord Shiva. A marvel in architecture the temple is unparallel in all ways. Apart from its elegant designs and carvings the temple precincts displays extreme solitude and serenity. Its pretty ambiance of the snowy peaks and the lustrous greenery attributes its charm.
