As India, Pakistan liberalise visas regime, a look at the must-see places in Pakistan
Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this Hindu temple in the Chakwal district of Punjab takes its name from the village where it stands - Katas. Legend traces its origins back to the Mahabharata era and it is said that it provided refuge to the Pandavas during a good part of their exile.
The temple had been in a sorry state of disrepair till the Pakistan government in 2006-07 decided to step in and take concrete steps to reverse the ravages of time and restore it to old glory. It has even been considered for nomination as a World Heritage Site.
Senior BJP L.K. Advani had visited the temple during his visit to Pakistan in June 2005.
