Bagnath Temple, Bageshwar Overview

There are a group of ancient temples here. The main temple is the Bagnath Temple dedicated to Lord Siva. On many of the temples there are bronze bells left as offerings by devotees. It is said that Siva came to this place. Some long treks are begun from Bageshwar.

This sacred shrine was constructed during the reign of the Chand dynasty and according to popular legend absolutely no one could establish the Shivlinga inside the temple sanctum and finally one Manorath Pandey of Palayn village went on penance and succeeded in installing the Shivlinga within the temple sanctum on the festival of Shivratri.

Ever since a huge fair is held at this location every year on the festival of Shivratri. Pilgrims from all over the country come to this shrine on temple tours, especially during the festival of Shivratri.
