Basheshwar Mahadev Temple or Vishveshwar Mahadev Temple, on the bank of the River Beas, is located 15 Km away from Kullu. The temple is considered as the biggest stone temple in Kullu. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is also known as Visweshvara Mahadev temple. It is constructed in the shape of a pyramid and contains "Yoni-Lingam" idol which represents Lord Shiva as well as his wife Goddess Parvati.

The temple is popular because of its stone carving which is really beautiful to see. Idols of Vishnu, Durga, Laxmi and Ganesha are also housed in the temple. People gather here in large numbers to seek blessings from the Almighty. It is said that the temple was constructed by Pandavas in just one day during their Exile period. The architecture of the temple is so strong that it withstood the severe earthquake of 1905 AD. And that is why the temple is declared as a protected monument. It is believed that the temple was rebuilt in the 8th century. Tourists get attracted towards the temple because of the surrounding beauty of the temple, the creative stone carving on inner and outer walls of the temple, the eye-catching sculpted figures and layered ‘shikhara’. Basheshwar Mahadev Temple, located in Bajura, is merely 4 kms away from Bhuntar airport.
