There are plenty of temples to see around in this place and the most important one is Baidyanath temple itself. The mythology behind the temple is that Ravana, the asura king had prayed to Lord shiva and earned the Linga. Shiva asked him not to place the linga anywhere else and if he did so the Linga would be fixed at that spot for ever. But the Devas worked a trick on Ravana and somehow managed to land the idol here. Ravana couldn’t replace it thereafter. Historically the temple is dated back to 1596. The temple has pretty much every major God and goddesses.
