  • I wouldn’t mind seeing the names of the districts or Tehsils for some of the temples, as I don’t necessarily know the villages by name. I’d be particularly interested in visiting the Parvati Temple at Killal but I don’t know exactly where that is. I’ve always found it strange that the Himalaya is the domain of Goddess Parvati, but there are so few temples dedicated to her in Himachal.
