Bijli Mahadev is one of the sacred temples of Himachal Pradesh. It is located in the Kullu Valley across the Beas River. A panoramic view of Kullu and Parvati valleys can be seen from the temple. It is said that the tall staff attracts the divine blessings in the form of lightning. It is believed that the priest of the temple has to restore the Shiva linga placed inside the temple using butter and sattoo after every lightning as it shatters to pieces with flash of lightning. – WIKIPEDIA
