Bhuntar has a quaint serenity to it and is considerable away from the maddening tourist crowds of the more famous places in Himanchal Pradesh. Surrounded by lush greenery, this town has temples with splendid architecture and high religious significance. Apart from a few temples a national park and a camping spot, Bhuntar has its silent old worldly charm to offer.

Basheshwar Temple

Though Bhuntar has less to offer, but it makes up for it in the quality of these places. Basheshwar temple, built by the Pandavas, is a beautiful temple with stone carvings all around with idols of major Hindu deities. The carvings are, and it goes without saying, very detailed and awe inspiring. Out of the twenty temples in all of Kullu valley, this is the biggest temple of Lord Shiva. The temple is easily distinguishable because of the flatly shaped shhikaras. Definitely a lot to look at.

Experience Time: 3-4 hours

Distance: 15 kms

Bijli Mahadev Temple

This is the one temple in Kullu that you cannot miss. From a legend where lightning strikes, to a huge structure and surreal surroundings with some of the best views and sceneries of Kullu, the temple is enchanting in every bit. It is said that the structure houses a Shiva Linga which was broken into pieces by lightning, that were brought back together and bounded by a temple priest using butter. The word around is that this repeats itself every year. The temple has to be reached by a trek through a 3 km long path covered with pine trees. The surroundings and the sceneries that one witnesses during the trek make it breathtakingly beautiful and refreshing rather than tiring.

Jagannath Temple

Amidst the lush green mountains of the town Bhuntar, the Jagannath Temple is tucked at the height of around 5,000 ft. above the sea level. Dedicated to Lord Jagannath, the temple holds a religious significance for Hindus, particularly. Located just 3 km away from Bhuntar, the temple is completely a paradise for not only god-lovers but, also for nature enthusiasts. Unlike the famous hill stations of Kullu and Manali which are located nearby, the small town of Bhuntar is not well-known amongst tourists. However, the scenic views from the top and the abundant natural beauty will blow away your mind. There is absolutely no crowd and the temple is imbued with tranquillity. To be in the peaceful lord's abode with verdant mountains feels like heaven on earth. In winter, the snow-covered mountains look even more appealing. The Jagannath Temple is a perfect weekend getaway. It comes to the rescue for those who want to run away from the chaos and embrace peace for a while.
