The Hindu pilgrimage town of Jageshwar sits, as though frozen in time, perched at an altitude of 6135 feet. Believed to be the abode of one of the twelve ‘Jyotirlingas’, it is one of the most important religious places for Hindus in Kumaon. Legend has it that Lord Shiva would come down from his abode and meditate here, surrounded by the thick Deodar
forest. Situated in the mountains, Jageshwar can be visited anytime. Summers are cool, winters get quite cold and it may snow. Being a sacred site, crowds throng the place during important religious festivals. Chittai, Patal Bhuvneshwar, Katarmal Sun Binsar, and Kangarchina temple are some of the unique places you can visit during your sojourn in this scenic hamlet. Van Serai is perfect for a peaceful holiday. It is ideally located for those wanting to introspect, meditate or take a break
from their stressful lives. However, for those who like a little action, there is plenty to do in and around Jageshwar. This summer drive towards Jageshwar- one of India's ancient village that has beautifully preserved 2500-year-old Shiva Temple.
