"Peaceful settings" new review

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
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.

  • Posted 2 months ago
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.

When you go for boating in Naini Jheel, visit Naina Devi Temple. Peaceful place. Then you can visit market outside the temple. You can buy so many things from local market of Nainital like woollen clothes, candles and flowers. One more thing enjoy local food also.

"Know the goddess after whose name the town had been named"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The temple is located in the Mallital end of the lake. The temple compound provides unobstructed view of the lake. One needs to remove the shoes before entering the temple. Taking photograph of the goddess is prohibited however photography of nature and self is allowed. Visit the Goddess from whose name the lake and the town had been named.

"Visit the temple during August for the Nanda Devi Mela"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The enormity and aesthetic beauty of this temple always attracts me to visit this place once a year. Nanda Devi holds the dignity of being the ruling deity of Kumaon region in Uttarakhand. The Nanda Devi fair held every year makes it altogether so special and attractive.

The idol of the goddess is a huge monument with a stone crown which is believed to fulfil the wishes of the devotees whoever visits the temple with clear heart. What makes it so attractive is the beauty of the Naini Lake and snowfall view for which lakhs of tourists worldwide visit the place every year.

Visit the temple during the month of August, September to witness one of the biggest festival of hills, the Nanda Devi fair. Do carry some warm clothes with you and a camera is a must to capture the serene view of nature at its best.

"Situated at the end of Mall Road and on the bank of Lake"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It's situated at the end of Mall Road and on the bank of Lake. The name Nainital and Naini Lake derived from the name of goddess Naini. You can also stay and sit on the side of the lake in the temple, it feels nice especially during sunset.

"Peaceful place"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Oct 12, 2015
First, one can stroll around Mall road and visit the temple. Few minutes at the temple and you would enjoy the walk by Thandi Sadak ( ask the shopkeepers outside about it ).
