"Temple so Significant !!"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 16, 2016
After Reading the actual fact behind the name kept of the very place 'Nainital', one must, specially if you are a deep devotee to Goddess, visit this mystic place. It is supposedly counted in one among 52 Shaktipeeth that exists. P. S . You will totally get mesmerized by reviving about the same evidences all around, and there, you'll feel like, oh I've stepped upon such a wonderful land of none other than Goddess Sati! Leaving aside the beautiful eye- catching scenery, thus Temple holds too much importance to anyone who is believer of Lord Shiva and his computability with his wife so beloved, Goddess Parvati! Must visit! It's a place so pure and pious !! Loved it! Shall pray to come here again! Guys please do pray for my prayers to be heard! :-)
The only thing which can still change is, the way the nearby shopkeepers sell the prasad and other items for performing puja, like incense sticks, chunri etc, in something, a bag or a better kind and quality paper bag, at least, in order to make it convenient for the visitors to carry the packets all over.

"Very divine feeling"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jun 19, 2016
We visited this soon after boating. It was very pleasant weather, so, it was nice there. Clean and well maintained, Devi temple. The place is named after this goddess. We offered some flowers and also got prasad from the priest. The compound in which temple is there has some sitting benches, so we sat and watched the lake once again. Divine feeling to sit and see Mandir.

"Not worthy"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted May 31, 2016
As one will be left nothing to do other than Boating and Ropeway. This sightseeing is inevitable, not worth. Naina Devi mandir is a very good place to stay about 1 hour even if you do not worship or offer 'Puja'.

"Awesome temple"

  • 0.5/7
  • Posted May 21, 2016
The Temple of Shri Naina Devi Ji is situated on a hilltop in the Bilaspur Dist of Michael Pradesh in India. The temple is connected with National Highway No. 21. The temple at the top of the hill can be reached via road (that curves round the hill up to a certain point) and then by concrete steps (that finally reach the top). There is also a cable car facility that moves pilgrims from the base of the hill all the way to the top.

"A nice temple"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Apr 26, 2016
Nenital is really a nice place. And the Naina devi temple is the heart of Nainital, it is located in the corner of Nainital lake. Nainital lake looks like a mango shape. Cave is also very good and amazing, ghorakhal temple is amazing, so many monkeys are there, they increase the beauty of the temple. And the most amazing part of the trip was paragliding. Woow that was amazing experience, about 15 minutes I fly with parachute. That was really really fabulous and amazing experience. There are so many lakes in Nainital (sarita lake, sattal, Bhimtal) etc. They increases the beauty, and the tea garden is also there.

A calm and peaceful area, little away from the main roads and market. The small gardens around are really beautiful with lot of flowers. The place is also really clean, and you can sit and relax around here.

"Great view in Devbhoomi"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Dec 17, 2015
Great view in night, Devbhoomi is the nickname so the atmosphere of the temple is enchanting with mantras, and the weather is chill and exciting. Foreign tourists are also in large numbers.
