More on Someshwar


The construction of the temple is quite meticulous in all its simplicity. Carved with careful intricacy, the entire facade of the temple is embellished with careful design. The contrast of colorful flowers against the stonework of the temple is a sight to behold. This temple is believed to be one of the twelve Jyotirlingas and is held in high reverence by believers. The idols here are believed to belong to a period between the 7th and 16th century. This shrine is an important religious landmark.

The entryway to the temple is quite inconspicuous, so once you cross Someshwar town, look for a small board leading up to the temple.

It lies about 10-11 kilometers away from Kausani and can be easily reached using a cab and local transport as well.
