Beautiful small town

Someshwar is small town in the valley before kuasani. It's comes on the way to kailash mansarovar yatra. Nothing is very special here, but beautiful stop on the way to kumaon hills.

Nice place with peaceful enviornment

If you are looking for a peaceful place where you can really enjoy the inner peace with Himalayan beauty.Someshwar is just 10-11km away from famous hill station Kausani. Wonderful holy place dedicated to lord Shiva.

Small rustic century-old temple with a charming well

Stepping in this temple, old and long-standing stone carved shrine one would feel the raw, primitive and rustic essence around. Like a typical century old temple of India, it is religious, crowded and noisy. The compound is unclean and soiled with random crowds - from regular devotees to tourists to the boorish locals but it has a charm of its own kind.The ambiance of a temple, the tinkling bells, the chimes, the smell of 'dhup' the aroma everywhere and the hymns and rituals practiced are all here - and in addition you have not only that fertile nature enclosing the temple, but also the marvelous magical wishing-well and spring adjacent to it.If not for other reasons you have to be there for the mesmerizing wishing-well. A small, withered rocky door opened up to an enclosed well and no one is allowed to enter the well, there is a certain custom and rule to do this and on doing so one's wish is believed to be fulfilled. I don't know about the belief but there's is something hypnotizing about the glistening green water of the well.We visited Someshwar temple on our way from Kausani. We met with some rituals going on - mainly the elaborate ceremony of age-old sacrifice of (to my surprise) some bullocks, which personally seemed uncomfortable to me. We had to take off our shoes too (general rule). Yet for the charm, mystery of conviction & all I felt blessed to drop by this holy place.

Simple yet elegant temple in Kausani

Small temple carrying tradition in a small village. Clean and calm. You have to walk for 2-3 mins from the main road. Consisting 2-3 small temples of Someswara that is Lord Shiva. Takes 15 minutes to see it.

Nature beauty.

Before going there I was thinking that it will be like any other hill place, but as I reached near to this city my mood was changing as I was reaching near the place. I really enjoyed the beauty of that valley.
