Markandeya Temple

Markandeya Temple is a renowned place of worship situated 20 km from the city of Bilaspur. It is dedicated to Sage Markandeya who lived and worshipped there. Legends claim that a tunnel connected Markandeya and Vyas caves and the sages used to visit each other through this subterranean route. A night fair held in the nearby spring on the Baisakhi day draws a large number of devotees.

Nearest airport is 106 km away at Shimla. Kiratpur Sahib is the nearest railroad station, 60 km from here.
