Gasota Mahadev Temple is located on Hamirpur-Jahoo road, at a distance of 8km from Hamirpur district in Himachal Pradesh. The temple dates back to over 400 years. The controlling deity is Lord Shiva, in the form of a shivling (phallus, symbolic representation of Lord Shiva). A fair is held on the 1st Monday of 'Jeshtha' month (end of May) annually, attended by an overwhelming number of crowds. The fair is known by the name of Gasota cattle fair. People and traders visit the temple during the 'mela' (fair), just to seek blessings of the Lord. Buying and selling of cattle is prevalent. The surroundings of Gasota Mahadev Temple are quite serene and striking to look at. Natural streams flow on either side of the temple, enhancing its glory. The temple complex is adroitly managed by a local panchayat.
