Anusuya Devi Temple and Atri Muni Ashram




Anusuya Devi Temple is a highly temple dedicated to Anusuya Devi, situated at an altitude of 2000 m above sea level, in Uttaranchal. The temple has great archaeological importance. It is believed that it is the only place where devotees circumambulate around the river as a mark of reverence. Anusuya Devi Temple is situated on Gopeshwar Kundľ Gaurikund motor-able road, 19 km from Gopeshwar.

Atri Muni Ashram is about 2 km from the temple. The magnificent sight of the cataracts of Amrit Kund and Amrit Ganga is a memorable experience.

A large fair, held annually during the month of December, on the occasion of Dattatreya Jayanti, draws a large number of people from far and near.
