A fork in the road from Rohru winds around and up the mountains. A short walk on a narrow path through fruit orchards and between houses reaches the main temple and its forecourt. The temple is built in the traditional katth-khuni style topped up with a tower. That, as it turns out, is the old temple, a new one is under construction the hill
The road climbs up from Rohru on shoulders of mountains and through Deodar trees to what appears – on a rainy and cloudy day – as a place that time has forgotten. The village of Gavas seems to appear out of nowhere with what must have been a vibrant and living community. It has spacious wooden houses with beautiful carvings visible even now. At the end of a winding street is a doorway that leads into a majestic complex of temples and supporting structures. Parts of this complex are intact, others appear quite worn out adding to mysterious sense that envelopes the place.
