  • Amazing Temple of Sun. Earlier there was no motorable road to Temple . Now while going from Almora to Ranikhet keep watching signs of Katarmal Temple, there is a left turn going up to Katarmal few kilometers before Ranikhet. Road is not paved, it is muddy, broken and narrow but still motorable. About 1km before the temple...there is a small trek going up taking about 20 minutes to reach Temple by foot. No photography allowed inside main Temple but outside many old small temples in compound..... no restrictions.
  • its a 900 year old temple of SUN(soorrya dev).I just love it.
  • A heritage. Temple built during 11th century. Dignified history of Uttarakhand, India.
  • Typical ancient abandoned temples. There are several small sculptures in one temple, but Is strictly forbidden to photograph.
  • Very nice place
