Naina Devi Temple

Naina Devi Temple

Back To Nainital

One of the 51 Shakthi Peeths located across India, Naina Devi Temple is a  Hindu holy site. There are several myths associated with the place. The prominent one says that Goddess Sati’s eyes fell here when Lord Shiva carried her charred body after her death. Hence the temple is dedicated to Sati Devi’s eyes. Decorated with golden dooms the pristine white-colored structure creates a tranquil aura. The steep steps lead the pilgrims to the top of the hill where the temple is located.  The view of the Gobind Sagar lake and the green valley from this point is enthralling.
