The valley is home to numerous beautiful temples dedicated to the gods and goddesses of the region, which are a popular tourist attraction for local and foreign tourists alike. Bahu has several temples of Yoginies, who are considered as helpers of the Goddess Durga.
Across the valley we find Shringarishi
Temple and Chaini Fort with their unique style of
traditional construction. With amazing views, the Jalori
Pass and sacred Saryolsar lake is the highest point before
the valleys twist and turn on their way down to Shimla.
