  • Beautiful temple and great views all around. There is a short climb to reach the place. A must visit if you are in Almora.

  • The temple sounds like a local deity temple but is a 6th century temple! It has old idols, and there is a trust that is putting effort and money to restore it. Must visit.

  • The temple is located on a hill top. There are two temples here, actually. One of Devi maa ( Kali) and the main one of Shiva. Swami Vivekananda visited here around 1890 and meditated here. The place is very serene and the views around are truly breathtaking. The views of the Himalayas are stupendous. There are about 60 steps to climb after you get down from your vehicle. This is also an ideal place to sit down in contemplation of nature and meditate, if that's your wont.
