Shirigul Temple is one of the oldest temples in Shirigul, placed on the Churdhar Peak, near to Deothali, in Sirmaur district, Himachal Pradesh. The presiding deity is Lord Shiva. Looking east, this square-shaped temple is a single storeyed building and goes up to a lofty height of 9ft. The roof comprises a gable and the uppermost beam is adorned with brass vessels secured to it by nails. Shirigul temple interestingly possessed only one door, which again is engraved with figurines. A dome-shaped small temple can be witnessed within the Shirigul temple premises. A shivlingam (phallus, symbolic representation of the Lord), 6 inches high and 4 inches in perimeter is preserved inside this tiny temple. The shivlingam is placed in a vessel of water, devoid of clothes and ornamentations. Both the lingam and the vessel are chiselled out of stone. Shirigul Temple is a highly hallowed place of worship among the locals.
