  • This Temple is just 30 mins drive away from Kausani, 17 kms away. This temple is developed in one night. This is famous Baijnath Mandir (Lord Shiva) on the bank of the river which is said to have been built by the Kumaon Katyuri king in around 1150 A.D. and it was Capital of the Katyuri dynasty of kings who ruled Uttaranchal during 12th and 13th century, Baijnath was once known as Kartikyapura. One of the most important places to visit in Baijnath is the historically and religiously significant Baijnath Temple constructed in the twelfth century. The temple holds significance because, according to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva and Parvati were married at the confluence of River Gomati and Garur Ganga. Dedicated to SivaVaidyanatha, the Lord of Physicians, the Baijnath temple is actually a temples’ complex built by the Katyuri kings with the idols of Shiva, Ganesh, Parvati, Chandika, Kuber, Surya and Brahma. Also the town of Baijnath draws its name from the temple. Situated on the left bank of the Gomti River at an elevation of 1126 mts, the temples are constructed in stone. The main temple that houses a beautiful idol of Parvati is chiseled in black stone. The temple is approached from the riverside by a flight of steps made of stones constructed by the orders of a Katyuri queen.
  • It's a temple developed by Katuri kingdom, in 7th to 13th century.. According to the story of #Shiva After marriage of shiv & parvati.. They stay there for one night or made that temple.. Only 2 temple in India where Shiv&parvati are together. Baijnath temple one of them.
  • Very old Historic place. Holy Hindu temple (Lord Shiva) with wonderful architecture by the side of river.
