Kalpa Temple, Kinnaur

Kalpa Temple, District Kinnaur, H.P.

Of all the ‘Devtas’ residing in Kinnaur, lord Narayana of Kalpa (an avatar of Vishnu) set in solid gold and silver is perhaps the most revered. Kept in a safe-house secured by iron chains and traditional padlocks, it’s only during special occasions the lord is taken out to meet with the lesser mortals.
