  • This is an experience. Imagine writing your requests, queries, conflicts for a faster addressing. The temple is so well kept I was recommended The place just for the experience and boy it was worth the ride. It was nice and very clean maybe because I went on a light day. More power to the team that is maintaining the temple premise, you are doing a great job.
  • Situated somewhere about 8kms from Almora, Chitai Golu is quite a famous temple in Uttarakhand. Presided by the deity of Golu Ji, an incarnation of Lord Shiva in the form of Gaur Bhairav, Chitai Temple is easily recognised by the amount of copper bells hung in its premises. Golu Ji is reckoned to be the God of Justice and it is a common belief that when someone worships him in one of his temples in Uttarakhand, Golu Devta provides justice and makes wishes of his devotees come true.
