  • Very peaceful place, situated 13 km away from Almora town. This Temple is famous for the numbers of bells there. It is said if you have any wish, just write it down on a paper and stick it in the temple. The tradition here is that to write your wish on paper and stick it in the temple, and when the wish comes true, as a return gift to the god, people used to donate a bell in the temple. Also Goljyu aka Golu devta called the God of Justice. This place is also famous as the God's court.
