Laxmi Narayan Temple Overview

Ranked 2 of 24 sightseeing in Chamba

The Laxmi Narayan Temple is one of the most revered places of the region, which was built by Raja Sahil Verman. The shrine, constructed in the 10th century, is devoted to the Vaishnavite sect. The main attraction of the temple includes the wooden chattries, which are built with regard to dynamic climatic conditions. The other highlights of the shrine are shikara, a sanctum sanctorum (Garbhagriha) along with an ‘antarala’ and a ‘mantapa’.

The shrine houses a metallic image of Garuda, ‘vahanam’ (mount) of Lord Vishnu. This image on the dwajastamba pillar at the entrance grabs the attention of tourists. In later developments, Raja Chhatra Singh ornamented the shrine roof with gold plated pinnacles in 1678. The roof was destroyed by the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb.

Worth the visit

Such a beautiful place where one see the old art of rock carving and the art of construction. The idol inside the main temple is huge and majestic. The prayers offered (aarti) in the evening time gave an internal peace and satisfaction. A person who comes to Chamba must visit Laxmi Narayan Temple. Its worth visiting.

1000 yrs temple, Must Visit

Good place to see, no permit or fees, very old architecture and one of its kind. Photography is prohibited at the main temple, but you can carry your camera along. Very scenic location and ideal for photography. Must visit if you visit Dalhousie and Chamba.

Lakshmi Narayan temple Chamba

Its a complex of all deity temple built in traditional Shikhar style. The best feature that appealed to me, is that you can get a darshan of the deity just by standing at the entrance itself.
