Located at an altitude of 2460 m at a hilltop in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh, across the Beas River, Bijli Mahadev Temple is one of the ancient and sacred temples in India. As the name suggests, it is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is very popular for trekking. It is said that the Bijli Mahadev Temple houses a Shiva Linga which was broken into pieces by lightning, that was brought back together and bounded by a temple priest using butter. The word around is that this repeats itself every year.
Bijli Mahadev has to be reached by a trek through a 3 km long path covered with pine trees. People who are religious and adventurous usually prefer to trek from Kullu while enjoying the pleasant weather. The surroundings and the sceneries that one witness during the trek make it breathtakingly beautiful and refreshing rather than tiring. The Bijli Mahadev Temple has a mesmerizing view of the surrounding valleys of Kullu, Parbati, Garsa and Bhuntar, which leaves everyone spellbound.
