  • The temple for its religious value apart is a sight in itself. The river banks were calm and soothing. We sat soaking our legs in cool waters, letting kids play in water under our watchful eyes. The only deterrent was the trash people left behind .. diapers mostly... Ugh!! Wake your conscience, people!! Leave our rivers clean please!!
  • Very soothing palace usually crowded ..with river, rocs, mountain,bridge,temple.... A very good palace photographer's & selfie lover's 😍😍 Note: watch out if you going to enter in river for or photos stone in river are very slippery & though the river is shallow but current very fast !!! So be careful.
  • Garjiya Devi Temple is a noted Devi temple located in the Garjiya village near Ramnagar, Uttarakhand.It is a sacred Shakti shrine where Garjiya Devi is the presiding deity.
  • Must visit while you are on trip to Corbett, Ramnagar. Serenity of this place is spellbinding.
  • visited and yes .... its was awesome as you sad....my friend
