Baijnath-Temple

BAIJNATH TEMPLE

The Baijnath temple located in the hilly state of Himachal Pradesh holds high religious importance amongst followers of Hinduism. It is a highly popular temple as it houses one of the 12 holy jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva in the country and devotees from across the country throng the temple to offer prayers to the lord. The temple is believed to have medicinal powers as the water emerging from the temple is believed to heal people from their illnesses. The Baijnath temple redefines the Nagara (north indian) style of architecture, which is highly popular in Himachal Pradesh. While the inner and outer walls of the temple boast of exotic carving and sculptures depicting incidents of Hindu mythology, the inner sanctum houses the holy shivling.
