Jatoli temple

Jatoli near Solan
Describing a temple is not an easy task. It needs a spiritual understanding of the place, the historical background and finally the deity's blessings, which slightly elevate you to write about the religious place. This is what exactly happened with me before I could really muster courage to describe about this wonderful piece of architectural beauty and the Asia's highest temple of lord Shiva. I, therefore, bow before the deity, the Lord Shiva and take spiritual pleasure and the strength in describing this temple at Jatoli near Solan.

Jatoli is a place about seven kms away from Solan in Himachal Pradesh. Jatoli means long Jata (hairs) which further signifies the long Jatas of lord Shiva. While tracing the history of this place I came to know that there existed the oldest temple of lord Shiva where an ancient lingam is placed. According to a legendary belief, lord Shiva visited this place and slept for a night. Similarly other legendary stories also support the same belief.
