My TripAdvisor Review No.18: Jageshwar Dham, Uttarakhand

“Abode of Lord Shiva.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 23 January 2014
Jageshwar Dham is located about 36 km from Almora. It is a holy place for the Hindus, and is believed to be one of the sites of the 12 Jyotirlingas.
There are a number of temples of various sizes surrounded by a forest of giant doedhar trees. There is a natural stream, Jata Ganga, flowing through the temple complex and the ambience of the surroundings gives one a sense of peace and serenity.
There is also an archeological museum run by the ASI nearby. You will find many shops selling 'prasad' items and sweetmeats, and a number of small restaurants serving local Kumaoni food.
