The rule interest of Baijnath is an outdated haven of Shiva. Neighboring towns are Palampur Kangra and Joginder Nagar in Mandi range. As demonstrated by the legend, it is assumed that in the midst of the Treta Yug, Ravana with a particular finished objective to have solid powers worshiped Lord Shiva in the Kailash. In the same strategy, to fulfill the almighty he offered his ten heads in the havan kund. Influenced by this extra regular deed of the Ravana, the Lord Shiva restored his heads and in addition gave him powers of quality and immortality.On achieving this uncommon guide, Ravana similarly requested Lord Shiva to run with him to Lanka. Shiva consented to the requesting of Ravana and changed over himself into Shivling. By then Lord Shiva asking for that he pass on the Shivling and forewarned him that hshould not put the Shivling down on the ground on his way. Ravana started moving south towards Lanka and accomplished Baijnath where he felt the need to answer the nature's call. On seeing a shepherd, Ravana gave over the Shivling to him and left to get himself mitigated. On finding the Shivling overpowering, the shepherd put the linga on the ground and thusly the Shivling got set up there and the same is as Ardhnarishwar .In the town of Baijnath, Dussehra festivity in which generally the resemblance of the Ravana is consigned to flames,celebrated all over the place all through the country is not celebrated as an indication of gratefulness to the dedication of Ravana towards Lord Shiva. Another charming thing about the town of Baijnath is that there are no shops ofgoldsmiths here .Another structure similarly suggests that while Ravana was falling from the Himalayas with the Shivling Lord Shiva had rewarded him taking after a long time of adoration which ought to be set up at Lanka, now Sri Lanka, which would have favored him (Ravana) with undefeatable powers even to the Gods which was not to be put wherever over the range of travel, despite in the midst of resting, Ravana was beguiled by one of the Devas (Gods), who acted like a vagrant and required help from Ravana and ensured to hold the Shivling for him while he (Ravana) could bring some sustenance for the destitute individual. The Deva acting like needy individual set the Shivling on ground, without Ravana.
