Some of my impressions from a recent trip to a powerful temple of Lord Shiva at Jageshwar. Come walk with me into Himalaya...
|From Delhi, Jageshwar is reachable by Train up to Kathgodam.|
This is the Haldwani Station just before Kathgodam, from
where one has to take a bus or as in our case Taxi for 6 hours drive
|On the way to Jageshwar, one crosses Almora and Nainitaal is nearby...|
|And the Jageshwar Temple...|
|And the various types of colorful devotees...|
|This is an co-joined ancient tree, supposed to be Shiva and |
his consort Parvati
|The next day, a visit to another group temple...|
|And the various temples within the Dandeshwar complex...|
|A place to meditate in front of Dandeshwar... in the back ground is|
another temple of Shiva
|Jageshwar offers many small treks to temples near by... This image is|
of a beautiful stepped farming on the way to Jhaker Saim temple
high on the mountains... would love to stay in that house...
|The international gang at Jhaker Saim temple...|
which we finally reached.
|Well there are many use of beer bottle...|
|The trek to temple is quite exhausting...|
|Back to base happiness .....|
|This time, our trip to Jageshwar was in the auspicious month of monsoon|
which is also the time of fare and festivities....
The local entertrainers put up cultural show for the visitors every night...
|Another popular local temple - Chitai Golu Maharaj, who takes offerings|
of Bells and written petitions to grant boons....
|The city of Almora was covered in monsoon clouds...|
|Finally on the way back to Kathgodam... to catch a|
train to Delhi..

ॐ नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya
