Pokhu Devta Temple

Pokhu Devta Temple is located at Naitwar in Uttarkashi District. The shrine is situated at the confluence of Supin and Rupin rivers. It is dedicated to a folk deity, Pokhu. This wooden temple is very similar to Karna's Temple at Sarnaul. Pokhu’s chamber is positioned behind a Shivling. It is said that Pokhu’s image can create terror and hence, it is not shown to anyone. The idol is worshipped with one's back towards it. Jolly Grant Airport is the nearest airport. The nearest railway station is at Rishikesh.
