In the placid vistas of Kumaon hills lies the sacred temple of Goddess Nanda Devi, who is believed to be the consort of Lord Shiva and an incarnation of Goddess Durga. She is also considered to be the patron Goddess of Garhwal and Kumaon region. This temple is believed to be almost 1,000 years old and was dedicated to Goddess Nanda by the kings of the Chand dynasty. Situated in the premises of a Shiva temple, the Nanda Devi Temple features a magnificent monument decorated with a stone amalaka or crown. The intricate carvings on the walls of the temple add to its beauty and reflect the skill of the artisans of that time. These unique carvings emulate lively images and figurines. The temple hosts a grand Nanda Devi fair that attracts thousands of devotees from across Uttarakhand and neighbouring states.
