"Must visit place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 25, 2016
1. come to the point it was full of enjoyment for me and my family as I said " must visit place " .
2. The atmosphere of the place was unbelievable.
3. The temple was mid of hillside. if you go with your friends and family so you will get 110% satisfaction. and also enjoy Pakoda with Bhang_ki_Chutney.

Only advice for visitors :
1- Minimum rent is Rs. 1000 of hotels.
2- If you want to go for just a day so please go early morning because last bus goes at 3pm from Jageshwar Temple to Almora Zila.

At last enjoy the journey if you go.

"Awakened God: Jageshwar"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Feb 16, 2016
Twelve temples of Shiva are known as jyotirling. Wondering why Jageshwar is not one of them, I spent full day at the group of temple. Awakened Goddess at Jageshwar. Up in Himalayas temple of twin - ling has mysterious presence of Lord Shiva and Parvati. The bedsheet stretched up at night around small cot is found wrinkled in the morning. After offering prayers to main shrine, I was guided to other temples. Fortunately I was chosen one by Divine to offer Aarti at Maha- Mrityunjaya. Awestruck I worshiped Mother Goddess for inner peace as well as prosperity. After climbing up few steps I found Kuber. God of riches. Sitting under the shadow of tall trees, whole existence of man-made structures became more meaningful. Only cold frosty touch could bring me back to my room. This place is profusely alive by constant chanting of mantras at yagya Vedi and fill us up with high energy of prayers.

"Calm and beautiful place to enjoy nature"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Oct 18, 2015
I have visited Jageshwar Dham 2 times. It is a great place to enjoy your holidays peacefully. There is no much hustle bustle of traffic only mantras bells of mandir can be heard. Very less people can be seen. Visit the great Jageshwar Mandir in the early morning.

"The missing Jyotirlinga"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jun 24, 2015
Having been to Nageshwar in Gujarat, I thought I have been to the jyotirlinga as mentioned in shiva purana, but luckily I visited Jageshwar and realised the real meaning of the sanskrit shloka which clearly says that Nageshwar is situated in the forests of or Deodar which can never grow in the plains of Gujarat & hence the temple at Jageshwar is the real jyotirlinga. This place has a collection of more than 100 ancient temples and a small river nearby making it a popular picnic spot. This is the place where the shahid-amrita rao starred movie Vivaha was shot. Overall it was a very satisfying visit having visited the missing jyotirlinga.
