About Baijnath Temple

Baijnath Temple Complex comprises 18 Hindu temples in Baijnath, Uttarakhand, situated along the Gomati river at an elevation of 1,125m. Pilgrims frequently visit during Shivratri and Makar Sankranti. The temples pay homage to deities like Shiva, Parvati, Karttikeya, and more. The complex is located in Baijnath town, Bageshwar district, specifically 22 km from Bageshwar and 16 km from Kausani. The main shrine features Vaidyanath Shiva, adorned with a lingam and a distinct depiction of Parvati. The historical roots trace back to the Katyuri kings, with inscriptions dating back to AD 1202. Although the temples were restored by King Gyan Chand, they faced plundering in AD 1743-1744. The complex stands as an exemplary showcase of 12th-century Nagara architecture crafted by the Katyuri Kings.
