Baijnath Mandir (Lord Shiva) on the bank of the Gomati river which is said to have been built by the Kumaon Katyuri king in around 1150 A.D. and it was Capital of the Katyuri dynasty of kings who ruled Uttaranchal during 12th and 13th century. Baijnath was once known as Kartikyapura.
One of the most important places to visit in Baijnath is the historically and religiously significant Baijnath Temple constructed in the twelfth Situated on the left bank of the Gomti River at an elevation of 1126 mts, the temples are constructed in stone. The main temple that houses a beautiful idol of Parvati is chiseled in black stone. Immediately outside the temple complex there lies a lake full of fishes "Golden Mahaseer" and fishing is strictly restricted at this site and is a major tourist attraction where you will find tourist offering chana to fishes.
The temple is approached from the riverside by a flight of steps made of stones constructed by the orders of a Katyuri queen. On the way to the main temple, just below the house of the Mahanta, is the temple of Bamani. Legend goes that the temple was built by a Brahmin woman and dedicated to Lord Shiva.
