India | Uttaranchal


Devidhura is an ancient temple town, about 58 km from Lohaghat near Champawat, situated at a height of 2,500 m. Tall deodar and oak trees and the verdant landscape make this hill town a charming place. It offers a picturesque view of the higher Himalayan ranges. The town is known for the ancient temple of Goddess Varahi. The three districts of Pithoragarh, Almora, and Nainital meet here. Ruins of a megalithic culture in this place were found by Henwood, an archeologist, in 1858. The place comes alive during the fair that is organized at the Barahi temple in connection with the festival Bagwal, on the day of Raksha Bandhan.

Devidhura is accessible either on foot or by vehicle. Jeeps, taxis and ponies are available for local transport. The nearest rail head is Tanakpur (110 km). Tourists can visit the place all round the year.
