Kunal Pathri Temple

Kunal Pathri Temple is located in the Dhauladhar Ranges in Kangra District, Himachal Pradesh. This temple is dedicated to goddess Kapaleshwari. It has beautiful carvings of gods and goddesses.

It is believed that the skull of Devi Sati, the wife of Lord Shiva, fell here after being cut off by the Chakra of Lord Vishnu into fifty-one pieces, to stop the ferocious dance, Tandava Nritya, of Shiva carrying the corpse of Sati.

Kotwali Bazaar, Bhagsunath Temple and Masrur are nearby attractions.
