Mahatma Gandhi found Kausani an inspirational place to retreat and write his Bhagavad Gita treatise Anasakti Yoga in 1929, and there is still an ashram devoted to him here. Nineteen kilometres north, Baijnath village has an intriguing complex of 12th century sikhara-style temples in a lovely location shaded by trees, with other shrines in the nearby old village.
