Jatoli gets its name from the long Jata (hair) that Bhagwan Shiva has. Considered as Asia’s highest Shiv temple, this is indeed an spritual & architectural marvel. Jatoli Shiv Mandir is one of the famous spritual destinations of Solan which attract a large number of devotees to Himachal Pradesh from across the world.
On the northeast corner of the temple, there is a water tank called ‘Jal Kund’ which is considered as pious as the holy river Ganga. The water of this tank is also said to have some medicinal qualities that can treat skin diseases. There is a cave inside the temple where Swami Krishnananda Paramhans Ji resided.
This ancient temple is famous for its annual fair, which is conducted during the festival of Mahashivratri. A number of devotees gather in the Mandir to offer prayers.
