Narayana Temple At Udaipur Near Chamba In Himachal Pradesh

Narayana Temple is located at Udaipur village which is around 8 km from Chamba town in Himachal Pradesh. The temple is small but fascinating and noted for its carvings.
The temple is built in memory of Raja Udai Singh and his brother Lakshman Singh, both of whom were assassinated at Udaipur by court officials.

The shrine has a Devi flanked by the king and his brother. Within the shrine is a stone slab, sometimes identified as a Sati stone commemorating the women who died with the king.

The carvings on the walls of the temple are remarkably well preserved. The greatest attraction of the temple is its pastoral setting straight out from a rural cinema.
