Delhi to Palampur (Himachal Pradesh) Road Trip | Driving Guide

I had travelled with fellow bloggers & photographers on a road trip to Palampur (Himachal Pradesh) from Delhi some time back on invite from Himachal Heritage Village. While our experience of Palampur was pleasant, the drive from delhi to palampur and back was a nightmare. It was because of a bad driver mostly, but also due to some mistakes we made while understanding the directions on google map. So I am sharing my guide on DelhJi to Palampur road trip by self driving or hired car.

Baijnath Temple in Palampur Himachal Pradesh, India

I am fascinated by the mythological narratives related with the ancient cities & heritage, especially of my faith Hinduism.  Although, I am more of a spiritual person who most often is a bit lazy about the faith related rituals in my daily life, I am constantly wanting to know about the various narratives of our gods & goddesses; I find that Hinduism has very nicely emphasised many great teachings on humanity, environment and life, through the mythlogical narratives of the various gods & goddesses that are worshipped & revered. One of my favourite Gods (yes I say favourite as I feel a connection to him) is Lord Shiva. I make it a point to visit temples or places related to the mythology of Lord Shiva whenever I’m travelling to a destination (i.e. if it is supposed to have one).

Some months back, I visited Palampur in Himachal Pradesh, India on an invite by Himachal Heritage Village for a long weekend getaway and amidst many wonderful experiences, a serene experience was making a visit to Baijnath Temple, located in main town. Sharing my experience of my Visit to Baijnath Temple in Palampur.
