Baijnath temple is one of the main attractions of Palampur, spotted at a distance of 16 km from the town. Since its foundation, the sanctuary, devoted to the Hindu divinity, Shiva, has persistently been under construction. The temple’s available construction modeling is a fine illustration of the Nagara style of temples which is common as the medieval north Indian sanctuary architecture. The Svayambhu manifestation of 'Shiva lingam' lies in the sanctum of the sanctuary over which a tall Shikhara is mounted. The outer walls and external doors of the temple showcase pictures of a few gods separated from religious inscriptions. A little four pillared yard set before the Mandapa with an idol of Nandi, the bull that serves as Shiva's mount, can be seen in the temple.
