One of the most important temples of the region, the Papnash Shiva Temple is believed to have been built by Lord Rama on his journey back from Sri Lanka. It is said that he installed a shivling at this spot. Tourists can also visit a natural spring flowing into a pond in front of the temple, called papnash or the annihilator of sins. The festival of Shivratri is celebrated with a lot of pomp and devotees come from across the country to witness this grand event. A well-laid picturesque road from the bus station leads to the temple, which is nestled in the verdant valley. The temple is very ancient and a new temple has now been built on the slopes of the hill.
