Located at an altitude of 2,460 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. 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.
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.
The surroundings and the sceneries that one witnesses 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.
