NAGGAR - GAURISHANKAR SHRINE

This town enjoyed the reputation of the Capital of Kullu for nearly 1400 years. Its enchanting location encircled by the panoramic view of the hills as back drop invites and detains both tourists and devotees alike. Its castle lying amidst splendid views of colorful nature, though now houses a hotel, still contains the regality of high order. Around this castle lie many magnificent temples built for all and among them Gaurishankar temple deserves mention.

It is built of gray stone, yet its architectural beauty is praise-worthy.

Here there are temples for other gods and goddesses like Tripurasundari etc., but the glory of Gowri Shankar stands quite apart. On account of the status, the town Naggar enjoyed as capital, foreigners visit in large numbers and offer worship devoutly. For the natives too, its pull is great. The images installed are best specimens of sculpture. They draw devotees regularly and on the periodical festival days, thousands congregate.

It is 5 km off Katrain on the river Beas river.
