Jatoli Shiva Temple is considered Asia’s highest Shiva temple.
Surrounded by beautiful hills, the temple is about 8km from Solan in Himachal Pradesh.
Built in south-Dravidian style, it stands at a height of 111 feet.
Jatoli gets its name from the long jata (hair) of Lord Shiva.
It is believed Lord Shiva stayed here for some time.
Later, in 1950s, Swami Krishnananda Paramahansa came here and started construction of the temple.
Its foundation stone was laid in 1974.
It took 39 years for the temple to be constructed.
When one taps on the walls of the temple, it produces the sound of damaru.
Damaru is known as the instrument of Shiva.
Statues of various gods and goddesses are installed in the temple apart from the crystal Shivling.
It also has a huge 11ft high gold urn installed at the upper end of the temple.
