Temple overview

Nanda Devi Temple situated in Almora is dedicated to Parvati, the deity, and daughter of the Kumauni people. Every 12 years, Nanda Devi Raj Jat is the most popular celebration of the area where Devi Nanda, in the form of sheep- decorated with ornaments, food, and clothing- is sent to her home Trishul peak with music, local folk songs and dances. The stone carving on the wall of the temple with statues of gods and goddesses is a centre of attraction to the tourists and dwellers. Dedicated to the patron goddess of Chand Dynasty, Nanda Devi temple is the centre of attraction and honour not only to Kumauni people but the whole of Uttarakhand.
Dev Bhoomi Uttarakhand preserves the mythical stories connected to every rock, peaks, rivers and villages. Gods and goddesses traded around the Himalayan state in ancient times and left their marks for people to preserve the traditions. The gifted land was just not traded by the divine figures but also lived and blessed. The prominent goddess of Hindu mythology ‘Nanda’ [widely known as Parvati, Gauri (brilliant), Uma (light), Kali (dark) and Bhairavi (terrible)] is believed to be born of Daksha Prajapati, a King of Garhwal in ancient times. Highly honoured by the locals and widely popular in Uttarakhand, Nanda Devi temple holds the dignity of being the ruling deity of Kumaun region and Kumauni people boost on being in the land where goddess Nanda was born. Yet summer months March to June and spring months September to November is the best time for Nanda Devi temple tour. Winter in Almora is cold and monsoon rain makes the route a bit slippery to trek through.
