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"

  • 6.00/7
  • 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.

Many old mythological stories are attached with the place. One must visit this place. It has a good architecture, religious value, sightseeing, it is peaceful and 30 km from Almora. Even the villages between Almora and Jageshwar are very beautiful. I loved the journey.
