Mukteshwar MahadevTemple, Nainital

4.4
#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Nainital
Take a long winding road up to Mukteshwar MahadevTemple--perched at 2,286 m (7,500 ft), it affords spectacular views of the jagged, snow-capped Himalayan ranges. During fruiting season the surrounding orchards bear apples, peaches, and pears, which you can pluck right from the tree. Religious pilgrims will probably find more to enjoy here than others, meditating and praying in this majestic and remote place. Still, casual visitors can appreciate the hikes with striking vistas, as well as the chance to observe birds of prey as they scour the ground for a meal (bring your binoculars).

  • Nice place. Almost 50 km from Nainital. It's a small temple. You will feel the chillness and the place is windy too. Actually that is the place where land ends. Drive by bike is good but you should drive carefully.
  • Quiet temple at Mukteshwar with Shiva as the presiding deity. One can walk up to the temple from the parking space. It is a beautiful view from the top of the hill. You can trek around the hill with the help of a guide. Some scenic photo spots too. There is a zip line and rappelling point too for the adventurous. Snack and tea by the way side for a break. Must visit if you are in the vicinity.
  • A very famous temple located near Mukteshwar market. The environment near the temple is so peaceful and serene, in the premises only near the main temple there is a samadhi sthal. One can sit there peacefully and enjoy the views. One of the best thing about the temple is that priest won't bug you for donations, one can simply worship at ease.
  • Awesome place with intermingling history and myth. A must visit for all. hope guide if you want to understand the local spots significance better.
  • Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Situated at the height of 2312 meters above sea level in Mukteswar, Nainital district of Uttarakhand. It takes hardly 1hr time to visit all around the temple. The surrounding is quite serene. No hustle bustle no crowds at all. View from the top to valley is really worth seeing. Cool and calm ambience. Recommend for nature lovers.
