Bagnath Temple (hi: बागनाथ मंदिर) is situated in the Bageshwar city.[1] It is an ancient shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva.

History[edit]

The temple was built in 1450 by Kumaon ruler, Laxmi Chand, at the confluence of Gomati and Sarayu rivers.[2] It is flooded with devotees on the occasion of Shivratri. On the occasion of Makar Sankranti every year a grand fair (mela in local language) is organized here.
