About Trilokinath Temple at Tunde

Trilokinath Temple at Tunde stands on an isolated hillock 41 km away from Dharamshala. It derives its name from the triangle of tri or three power temples in the area one of them being the Trilok Cave Temple that is easily accessible by road. On the ridge of the cave, there are ruins of a palace and a Baradari (audience hall). These belonged to Lehna Singh Majitha who was the Governor of Kangra Hills during the Sikh rule. Trilok Cave Temple is housed inside a natural cave that is famous for its limestone formations. These stalactite and stalagmite formations are centuries old and forms a white hard mass that border the cave in places. There is an interesting legend associated with the stones and deposited limestone inside the cave. It is said that one day when Lord Shiva was in deep meditation inside this cave, a shepherd came inside it. The places where we today find rock pillars surrounding the Lingam were made of gold during that mythological time. Greed took over the shepherd and seeing Lord Shiva asleep; he decided to take away pieces of gold from the pillar. However, whenever he did so and walked out of the temple, he would turn blind. Once he kept those pieces back, he would be able to see again. He was so desperate to take gold home that he tried multiple times. This angered Lord Shiva who thought what will happen in later times if this was the state of mankind in Satyuga. So thinking he converted those pillars into stones- the ones seen at present in the cave temple!
