The very sight of the temple has a very ancient and historic look. The temple looks like the one you see in an Indiana Jones movie. This was the first temple that I visited in Almora. It was morning when I visited this temple and the whole temple was cleaned by water as it was winter my feet froze due to cold and hence it got a little difficult to roam around the area. There are many small shrines here the main being the Shiv ling. This is a must visit temple for its look and peaceful ambiance.

It is an ancient Shiva temple located near Almora in Uttarakhand. There are 100 temples in the Dham. It is said that Adi Shankaracharya has built some of these temples. The jageshwar dham is surrounded by dense Deodar forest. Nageshwar temple is the main temple here. The temple is believed to incluede in Nagesh Jyotirlinga. You can take pictures of anything but, have to take permission from Pujariji. The temple is being managed by Archaeological Survey of India. There are a phew hotels near the Temple. You need 2-3 hours to visit the all the temples and the Jata Ganga, a small river on the side of the temple.

If you are visiting Almora, do include this beautiful temple in your itinerary. In the temple complex there are two separate temple for lord Shiva - one for lord Mrityunjaya Mahadev and other for lord Jageshwar Mahadev. It is a very told temple under ASI administration. If you wish to offer prayer then you may prefer to speak to one of the pandits. They take care of all you need for the puja. And charge you for the entire thing, which in my view is very convenient. Avoid peak days if you want spend quality time at this place.

The Temple or I must say group of temples are a sight to behold.
The 9th /10th century architecture is a delight to watch.
I thing which strikes to your mind immediately: is the location of Temple- surrounded by lush green hillocks.
Its 35 kms from Almora and is accessible throughout the year unlike some Temples in Uttarakhand. So if you are travelling to Nainital or Almora or Ranikhet for a weekend trip, this is place to visit
