Jateshwar_ RupnagarThe Mahadev Temple, known simply as the Shiv Mandir locally, is located in Jateshwar village. Local lore has it that the temple dates back to ancient times, even though the present temple, built by one Jai Dayal Sharma, does not appear to be more than a 100 years old. Glimpses of the older temple can be seen in the remains of four carved sandstone pillars, possibly from the 10th or 11th centuries, as well as, in a medieval mound located nearby. Other than the annual fair on Shivratri, devotees throng the temple during sawan (July and August), the season associated with Shiva.
