Goddess Naina Devi, Nainital

4.6
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Nainital
A major place of worship for Hindus, Goddess Naina Devi is devoted to Maa Naina Devi, the "Mother Goddess." The temple was built in the 15th century, though much of its current structure dates back to the 1880s--major efforts restored the building to its former glory after a devastating landslide. The surrounding area offers a tranquil atmosphere and remains an ideal spot to relax beside Naini Lake. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Nainital holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Goddess Naina Devi and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It felt great when it came Very good place. The evening view is worth seeing. And cold air Naini Lake is worth seeing everything. And between this, the temple of Naina Devi Mata feels a calm place.At night it seems as if it is Diwali everyday. From the light of the house built on the mountain, it seems like it has come to heaven......…☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️
  • This is a temple (also known as one of the शक्तिपीठ) where goddess sati's eye is located, previously there was a small temple which got damaged by natural disaster and now has been renovation very well. Located on the nani lake side temple had a very peaceful environment.
  • Very refreshing. The view is spectacular. Definitely worth visiting atleast once. Really wish I could visit this once again.
  • Very nice and beautiful temple of naina devi mandir on the naini lake nainital
