  • Pyramid shaped Shikhara of the temple According to Hindu beliefs, the demon king Ravana worshipped Shiva at the current site of the temple to get the boons that he later used to wreak havoc in the world. Ravana offered his ten heads one after another to Shiva as a sacrifice. Pleased with this, Shiva descended to cure Ravana who was injured. As he acted as a doctor, he is referred to as Vaidhya ("doctor"). From this aspect of Shiva, the temple derives its name.
  • The temple is almost 1200 years old.. And very peaceful place..
  • Nice holy place built in 900ad century... Peaceful place with pond on the side.
  • Must visit place if you are visiting Kausani ... not well maintained but marvel of human creativity
  • These are some of the oldest yet well maintained temples of Kumaon Region, They've made an artificial lake near it too. Worth your time.
