Buniar Temple is a prehistorical temple, belonging to the medieval era is the only exclusive temple built in granite stone of whitish colour. However, due to age and neglect, the shrine has almost reduced down to dilapidation. The temple has a double-chambered gateway facing both sides with lintels on the closed arches. The entrance and exit ways are formed by the flight of steps on the eastern and western sides of the Buniar temple. The original deity which seems to have been Lord Vishnu, has now been replaced by a small Shivling. The stone used to construct the ceiling was known as Kanait, analogous to Kanjur of Taxilla. The evidences on a Sharada inscription of Ramadeva bring out the description of the stone structures. It is undoubtedly the best conserved of all the larger Kashmir temples. Buniar temple is about 2 miles from Rampur in Baramulla. The nearest railhead is Jammu.
