Kot Bhramari Temple Overview

Ranked 5 of 12 sightseeing in Kausani

Kot Bhramari Temple is situated on the top of a hill within a fort. Located in Bageshwar District, it is also known as Kote-ke-mai, or Bhramari Devi temple. Legend corroborates the belief that Adi Guru Shankaracharya made a stay here on the way during his journey to Garhwal region.

Located at a distance of 5 km from the town, the temple serves as the venue for organising a yearly fair on Nanda Ashtami in the month of Bhadrapad August. During the festival of Nanda Ashtami, or nanda raj Jat, the Goddess, Bhramari is taken for the yatra. During the yatra, the goddess joins the main procession at Nandkesari on the banks of river Pinder.

It is located at the top of a mountain enclosed by a fort. Known popularly as Bhramari Devi or Kote-ke-mai temple, its key feature is its main deity, Goddess Bhramari, who is facing north. From the south direction of the temple, devotees offer prayers. During a grand fair held annually during August, the idol is taken out in a procession adorned by celebrations all through the surrounding regions.

Awesome view once you reach the top

I visited this temple based on the review at holidayiq.com. Awesome view once you reach the top. You could have a sturdy car since there is a climb. When I reached the temple it had started raining. Looked beautiful. Wish I could have spent more time. Place is pretty quiet. Not too many people around.

Excellent temple

It's a very nice place just 15 mins from baijnath temple towards gwaldam. The sightseeing from the temple is also awesome. Green hills and farming on hills also seen from the temple. It's a must visit place. Its is nicely maintained and we can feel the natural beauty of hills from here..
