Bhutanatha Temples

The ancient Bhutanatha Temples are two Shiva temples located on the bank of the ancient Bhutanatha Lake. The temples present the Lord in the form of Bhutanatha, the God of Souls. One of the shrines dates back to the 7 th century. And the rest are additions made around the 11th century. The idol of Lord Shiva is carved in a rare pose, leaning back, in all his awesome majesty. The carvings of the incarnations of Vishnu, as well as some Jain figures can be seen on the boulders behind this temple.
