#2 of 11 in Things to do in Jim Corbett National Park

  • This temple situated at the Riverside has a very calming effect. Though like any other other temple its crowded and dirty. But the peaceful river and small space at the top doesn't let it be too noisy. We sat beside river with our feet in not so deep water. It was cold but yet refreshing.
  • Nice temple on a nice location. Beautiful and unique place. This temple is situated in the middle of Kosi river on top of a 100 ft high small hill. There are covered stairs to reach the temple. A bridge has been made by government on the river to approach temple area.
  • A divine place full of positive energy and calm atmosphere. Best yo visit during summers so that you can take dip in the beautiful Kosi river.
  • A beautiful spiritual place to visit with family. You will find a long.. looooong line but that's worth it. And the scenery there is amazing. Clean n clear water of river Kosi. Only drawback is the trash dumped by visitors.
  • This visitors place is awesome. I like this place and very attractive placed of nature's, I am enjoying this place. So cool Thnx......
