India | Uttaranchal | Rudraprayag


Place famous for the temple of sage Agastya.

Agastyamuni, situated on the bank of river Mandakini, is a famous pilgrimage center in Rudraprayag, Uttaranchal. Perched at an altitude of 1,000 meter above sea level, this place is thought to be where Rishi Agastya meditated for a period of one year.

Major attraction here is an ancient temple dedicated to sage Agastya. The Agasteshwar Mahadev temple is also noted for its architectural splendor. The stone carved images of gods and goddesses that adore its walls typify the architectural proficiency and inimitable craftsmanship of yester years. A large fair organized here during Baisakhi draws scores of devotees. Hundreds of people throng the temple to worship.

Agastyamuni is just 18 km away from Rudraprayag city.
