"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.

Jageshwar temple is dedicated to the lord Shiva and revered as the eighth jyotirlinga by the locals. It is surrounded by the dense deodar forest and some beautiful streams like Jad Ganga etc. It is around 40 kms from Almora on the way to Pithoragarh. It is reachable all seasons. There are several food joints and hotels around temple premise.

"A place providing peace"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 2, 2014
If you want a break from your daily hectic routine and want some peace of mind just move on to Jageshwar in Almora. It is one of the 12 jyotirling in India, it is situated in a lap of nature behind lush green tall deodar trees. It is a collection of ancient temples which are more than 100 in number. You can have pure simple Pahari food in the near by shops on the way you can also visit a historical museum and a eco park. This place is around 35 km from Almora. One can easily reach there by car. A peace providing place indeed.
