The Trilokinath Temple, also known as Sri Trilokinathji Temple, is located in Trilokinath village in Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh, India. About 9 km from the village of Udaipur (not to be confused with Udaipur in Rajasthan), the temple is the only place in the world where both Hindus and Buddhists worship. The diety is considered as ‘Lord Shiva’ by Hindus while the Buddhists see it as Arya Avalokiteshwar. ‘Trilokinath’ is another name of Shiva, a Hindu god and it means the ‘Lord of Three Worlds’. However, it is believed that the Trilokinath Temple was originally a Buddhist monastery.
At an altitude of 2760 metres, the beautifully white-painted temple could be seen at the end of the street in Trilokinath village. ‘Tunda Vihar’ is the ancient name of the Trilokinath Temple and is considered as the most sacred pilgrim tirth after Kailash and Mansarovar. The colourful Tibetan prayer flags swaying in the wind, the sound of the brass bell with the surrounding snow-clad mountain peaks and pine trees, Trilokinath Temple offers a serene view and magical comfort to the eyes. For peace seekers and religious people, it is surely an ideal place to explore.
