Travel to Baijnath

The landscapes on the road from Baijnath to Baijnath look like green quilts spread over the hills. The valleys rising out of the streams of Kumaon have been gracefully patched with terraces and stem stitched with white boulders.


       


Such rounded boulders also line the banks of the Gomati River which flows around a headland bright with flower beds and stands of poplar. There are 14 temples, large and small and a number of sculptures lying around. These stone temples have been ascribed to the Katyuri rulers of the 8th to 10th century and in those days Baijinath was reputedly a thriving imperial town.
