Raghunath Temple

Hindu Temple in Kullu

Kullu's pre-eminent temple enshrines the Kullu Valley's major deity, a tiny bronze idol of Raghunath Ji (Rama) that lords it over the Dussehra celebrations. The 17th-century temple is in the Sultanpur area on the hill above the bus station and near the Raja Rupi, the palace of the former Kullu rajas; the main shrine closes for several hours in the middle of the day, but you'll probably still be able to peer through its window.

The temple is at its liveliest during the well-attended pujas (7am, 10am, 5.30pm and 8pm mid-April to mid-September; 8am, 11am, 4pm and 7pm other times).
