Mukteshwar MahadevTemple, Nainital

4.5
#2 of 10 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). See Mukteshwar MahadevTemple and all Nainital has to offer by arranging your trip with our Nainital planning app .

  • Awesome place. Nice soothing weather and the air is pure and refreshing. The temple itself is at a serene point to provide the holy and beautiful feeling of Mahadev in every part of the place.
  • A very peaceful place. It’s quite far from the city but the landscapes on the way are worth it. I’m really not a temple going person though. And the view from the top is the best ♥️
