Located 5 kms away from the town of Dharamshala in Khaniyara, at the foothills of Dhauladhar, Aghanjar Mahadev Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Believed to have been built around 500 years ago, the temple is nestled amidst bounteous forests and emerald mountain peaks. Other than the idyllic setting, a tiny cascading waterfall accentuates the beauty of the shrine. A small cave near the temple houses a shivalinga and has been marked as a revered spot of worship. Besides the pilgrims, Aghanjar Mahadev Temple also attracts tourists in hordes owing to its serenity and tranquillity.
Perched at a little height, the 500-year-old temple can be reached through a stone paved pathway. Some 50 steps below is a tiny stream of water flowing which is often used as a picturesque picnic spot. The scenic beauty of Aghanjar Mahadev Temple makes it an ideal spot for nature enthusiasts and photography buffs in addition to the Shiva devotees.
