The principal shrine of Nirmand (also known as the 'Kashi of the Himalayas', Nirmand is the largest and most ancient village in Kullu), Parashuram Temple is built in the conventional Pahari styled double-storeyed building with gabled slate roof. This temple akin to a hill fortress encloses a tiny courtyard with the only entrance from the western side. The northern part of the Parashuram Temple is a double-storeyed structure that stores invaluable artifacts. The intricate carvings on the exterior wooden balconies and pillars exemplify stories from Hindu mythology. Inside, is a statue of Parashuram with three heads. The marvellous statue was gifted by Rani Agartala of Kashmir in 900 A.D; there is a diamond eye in the centre of the forehead. Nearby temples of Devi Ambika and Lord Shiva are also worth a visit. Nirmand is 150km northeast of Shimla and 17km from Rampur.
