Mukteshwar

Mukteshwar Temple

The Land Of Scenic Splendors


Named after Lord Shiva, this idyllic hill station is called the land of natural wonders. Mukteshwar is a small hill station in the Kumaon district at an altitude of 2286 m. Located 50 km from Nainital and about 350 km from Delhi, Mukteshwar is surrounded by a thick wooded forest. This splendid hill station offers a majestic sight of the Himalayas. In the full-moon night Mukteshwar also offers a spectacular view of the sparkling Almora town and the majestic peaks of Adi Nampa of Nepal (stretching up to the Chaukhamba Peaks of Garhwal).

A major part of the dense greens is covered with fruit orchards and thick coniferous forest. The main attraction at Mukteshwar is the old temple of Lord Shiva that exists on top of a rock. A stone hole called 'Chauli Ki Jali' is also situated quite close to the town, and is also dedicated to Lord Shiva.


Major Attractions


Mukteshwar Temple

The most distinguished attraction of Mukteshwar is the Mukteshwar temple. Located at an altitude of about 2315 m, this temple offers panoramic views of the Himalayas.
