Mentioned on the copper plate here, like in Varansi, the spirit of Siva prevails. This is his town. An entrancing spot in the valley, it is pilgrim center, with the 15 shrines and ancient temple of Baijnath, built in 1450 AD, that gives the town its name. In the month of January, thousands of pilgrims converge here to the Uttargayani Fair to have a dip in the holy waters of the confluence. Fasting and chanting, they worship Siva in the temple built for Him many centuries ago. During the Katyuri rule, it was one of the administrative centers, near their capital.
