Old temple located on a side road

I visited Lord Basheshwar Mahadev on 15 June 2015 on my way to Manikaran from Kullu. This temple is situated in Bajaura. It is located on a side road. My taxi driver, a veteran of 45 years, did not know the temple, but I found it out by asking the local people. It is an old temple (built in the 8th century) and largest in Kullu. In some aspects, it looks similar to the temple of Lord Baijnath, but much smaller.
