BALESH­WAR TEM­PLE

Airports India - - LORD SHIVA -

Pop­u­larly known as Kali Ku­maon, now Cham­pawat dis­trict has in­nu­mer­able tem­ples. Ded­i­cated to Lord Shiva, this tem­ple based on South In­dian ar­chi­tec­ture which was built by Chand dy­nasty. Af­ter de­feat­ing Katyuri kings, Thor Chand laid the foun­da­tion of Chand dy­nasty in 11 cen­tury.

It’s a na­tional her­itage mon­u­ment looked af­ter by Arche­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey of In­dia (ASI) since 1952. The re­mark­able stone carv­ings work is sub­ject of in­ter­est for schol­ars. A big fair held on ev­ery Shivra­tri.
