Mukteshwar MahadevTemple, Nainital

4.4
#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).

  • Temple is located at Hill top of Mukteshwar. Please visit during visiting hours only. If you try to visit early morning you will find wild animals instead of human beings. You won't find open Gates of temple before 7-8 AM in morning.
  • This is a very beautiful temple build on the top of the hill. Chilling breeze flow every during summer.. believed to be one of the highest temples in Himalayas... Shiva avatar as Mukteshwar... And many more local folklore...
  • This temple located at hill-top of Mukteshwar. If you are going here take your winter clothes. The view is amazing from the temple. Many shops are there to buy foodstuffs. During the journey from Nainital u can see apple garden, tea garden, small temples.
  • The guides here charge Rs 300 and claim to bypass the 95 stairs path by taking you via flat (infact slightly inclined) path via adventure sports place. One can go without guides as well, need to take left path at the start of stairs. Good Devine place.
  • It is a very quite and peacefull place without any type of pollution i recommend every one to visit there atleast once
