Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
A major place of worship for Hindus, Goddess Naina Devi is devoted to Maa Naina Devi, the "Mother Goddess." The temple was built in the 15th century, though much of its current structure dates back to the 1880s--major efforts restored the building to its former glory after a devastating landslide. The surrounding area offers a tranquil atmosphere and remains an ideal spot to relax beside Naini Lake.
